SSbD Approaches for Chemicals, Advanced Materials and Plastics

Venice is calling: Learn about nanosafety in the historic centre of Venice, Italy, from 14–19 May 2023! #venicenano23

This year’s sessions will be around the following topics:

  • Safe-and-sustainable-by-design approaches for nanomaterials and advanced materials 
  • Environmental and health impacts of micro and nano plastics
  • Physicochemical  characterisation methods for advanced materials
  • Methods to assess the release of advanced materials, their fate, biodistribution and exposure
  • New approach methodologies (NAMs) for hazard assessment of advanced materials
  • FAIR data management in nanoinformatics 
  • Computational modelling of properties and interactions
  • Sustainability assessment methods (environmental, social and economic)
  • How to make my method ready for regulatory acceptance?
  • Policy perspectives  on risk governance of nanotechnologies
  • Science diplomacy: The role of interdisciplinarity in SSbD

Additionally, there will be several possibilities to network with the experts and other participants.

The school is organised by various EU-funded research projects and other initiatives led by the H2020 project SUNSHINE. It offers hands-on sessions to learn State-of-the-Art knowledge from key experts in the field. 

Join us and learn more about Safe and Sustainable by Design – register HERE by 20 March 2023

Venue: Venice, Italy, Auditorium Santa Margherita  

Dates: 15–19 May 2023, with a social get-together on the evening of Sunday, May 14
