The Eranet-SIINN project nanoIndEx together with the CEA Nanomaterials Chemistry and Safety Laboratory carry out a workshop on “Assessment of Individual Exposure to Nanomaterials”. The upcoming workshop will be held on November 21st 2014 in Grenoble, France, subsequent to the fourth international conference on safe production and use of nanomaterials NANOSAFE 2014.

An interesting program and comprising lectures will be presented by the nanoIndEx project partners. Presentations will cover the possibilities of personal monitors and samplers and will address questions concerning the personal exposure to MNMs such as:

  • the identification of measurable metrics and suitable personal samplers and monitors
  • laboratory tests on samplers and monitors using a large variety of particle size distributions and morphologies
  • field studies on the comparability and applicability of samplers and monitors


Attendance at the workshop will be free of charge for registered participants. So please register here until 5th, 2014.
