The EU INFRASTRUCTURE project QualityNano comes near completion and will hold its final conference on 15-17 July 2015 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. Local host for the meeting is the FORTH institute. This conference is jointly organised with the EU funded project NanoReg which is already in its second year and addresses the crucial question of regulatory research in the nanosafety area. The upcoming EU INFRASTRUCTURE project EU NCL is invited to join the scientific effort and have confirmed their participation.
The organisers will welcome scientists from other projects in the European Union, and beyond. 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.We believe that this cross-project talk and seamless collaboration is essential for the success of the research paving the way for safe industrial innovation.
For the moment we kindly ask you to save the above dates, and over the next couple of weeks there will be more details and information on the meeting released.
