InterNano Summer School 2015

From 12th – 16th October 2015 the city of Landau / Germany is hosting the "Summer School 2015 - Experimental Analytical Techniques for Characterization of Nanoparticles and their Effects" which is organised by the InterNano Project.

The summer school will give a general overview in the field of modern methods for nanoparticle characterization and determination covering advanced microscopic, chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques. Furthermore, the experimental methods for the characterization of transport, aging and biological effects of engineered nanoparticles (ENP) will be addressed. The summer school will offer the opportunity for young researchers to gain multidisciplinary knowledge on analytical characterization of nanoparticles and on their interaction, toxicity, aging and transport mechanisms in complex environmental media. The theoretical sessions will be complemented by lab works in which selected methods will be applied.


More information on the workshop can be found in the programme flyer (PDF, 730 KB) or via https://www.uni-koblenz-landau.de/de/landau/fb7/umweltwissenschaften/forschung/internano/summer-school
