JRC contribution to "Nanosafe 2012"

3rd International Conference on Safe production and use of nanomaterials - 13-15.11.12, Minatec, Grénoble

Over 370 scientists from different organisations  and research institutions dealing with safety of nanomaterials met at Nanosafe 2012, the 3rd  International Conference on Safe production and use of nanomaterials held at MINATEC in Grénoble on 13-15 November 2012.

Several researchers from the Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (JRC-IHCP), Nanobiosciences Unit, contributed to the event:

Other presentations provided at the event will soon be made available by the organisers on the conference website
