Closure Event NRP 64 "Nanomaterials"

On 2nd June 2017, the Closure Event of the National Swiss Research Program "NRP 64 - Opportunities and Risks of Nanomaterials" will be held at the Forum Fribourg / Switzerland.

In the past six years, the National Swiss Research Program "Opportunities and Risks of Nanomaterials" NRP 64 intensively studied the development, use, behaviour and degradation of synthetic nanomaterials, as well as their impact on humans and the environment. During the programme's Closure Event, the most important findings and current state of the art in nanotechnology research will be presented.

Parallel to the NRP 64 Closure Event, the Swiss Nano Convention 2017 will be held on 1st and 2nd June 2017 at the Forum Fribourg.



WHEN: 02nd June 2017

WHERE: Forum Fribourg, Switzerland
