The University of Zaragoza (UNIZAR http://www.unizar.es/) organizes together with the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA) http://ina.unizar.es/index.php an EU FP7 NanoValid www.nanovalid.eu training workshop “Advanced Characterization of Nanomaterials”. The characterisation of nanomaterials requires not only profound knowledge of the physico-chemical processes and techniques but also the use of state-of-the-art device. The workshop is envisaged to enhance knowledge about current analytical techniques and to foster the development of new materials and procedures in nanotechnology. The workshop addresses both PhD-students and PostDocs, provides access to advanced techniques of nanotechnology with the assistance of fully qualified scientific and technical personnel. During the workshop there will be an open poster and oral presentation session in addition to the theoretical and practical units.
