Nanosafe 2008

​​​​​The first-edition of the Nanosafe Conference

Published on 5 October 2016

​This conference is organised by the Integrated NANOSAFE2 project, funded by the European Commission under FP6. The rapidly developing field of nanotechnologies presents many opportunities and benefits for new materials with significantly improved properties as well as revolutionary applications in the fields of energy, environment, medicine, etc... The industrial production and use of nanoparticles will be the driving force for the emerging new materials industry of the 21st century. In terms of economics, analysts have estimated that the worldwide market for nanomaterials will be 700-1000 billions Euros in 2011. 

However, the potential impact of these new materials on human health and the environment is viewed with apprehension. This new industry can only develop dynamically if these preoccupations are satisfactorily allayed.

The conference is intended to present, on the one hand, the main results issued from the project and, on the other hand, to make known the major progress and projections in the domain of the safe production and use of nanomaterials.
