Final Meeting of ENPRA project (Risk Assessment of Engineered NanoParticles)

Major European research project on safety of engineered nanoparticles presents final results

When Sep 19, 2012 09:30 AM to
Sep 20, 2012 04:00 PM
Where Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (UK)
Contact Name
Organizer ENPRA Project

On 19-20 September 2012 the Final Meeting of the EU-FP7-funded ENPRA project (Risk Assessment of Engineered NanoParticles) will be held at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (UK).

After three and a half years of research, the team of the ENPRA project is looking forward to presenting the final results of its activities on the assessment and management of potential health risks from exposure to engineered nanoparticles.

As part of an annual series (2012, 2011 and 2010) and as final event of the project, the meeting will bring together the project leaders as well as regulators and other stakeholders.

 

Participation and programme

Participation to this workshop is by invitation only.
