Safe Nano Design Workshop

Molecule • Manufacturing • Market

Date: August 14–16, 2012
Location: College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering of the University at Albany, Albany, NY

Event Purpose

Participants at this workshop will provide input into the safe commercialization of nano products using a Prevention-through-Design approach. Participants will share their knowledge on the efforts to develop safer nano molecules that have the same functionality; process containment and control, based on the considerations of risk of exposure to workers; and the management system approaches for including occupational safety and health into the nanoparticle synthetic process, product development, and product manufacture.

Check back for updates to the agenda. The registration deadline is August 3, 2012.
