QualityNano EU-Project

From 15th-17th of July the Greek Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (FORTH) is hosting the final conference of the EU-Infrastructure project QualityNano in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. The conference is jointly organized with the EU-Project NanoREG that addresses the crucial question of regulatory research in the nanosafety area. The upcoming EU INFRASTRUCTURE project EU-NCL also confirmed their participation.


The conference is open to all interested scientists, particularly from other EU projects and other stakeholders from nano security community. The organizers welcome all interested scientists especially from other European projects and the conference is also open to stakeholders of the wider nanosafety community.

The overarching aim of this workshop is to transfer the lessons learned and knowledge gained in QualityNano to the NANoREG project and the nanosafety community. This cross-project talk and seamless collaboration is essential for the success of the research paving the way for safe industrial innovation.


Further details on the event and participation (limited availability) will be published over the next couple of weeks under http://www.qualitynano.eu/news/103/59/QualityNano-Final-Conference.html 


WHEN: 15. – 17. July 2015

WHERE: Heraklion – Crete, Greece
