NanoImpact Conference

The overall goal of the planned conference will be to integrate the scientific knowledge available about nanomaterial exposure, fate, effects and risks in the environment. The core topic of all presentations should address whether nanomaterials have novel fate routes and effects and pose new and unknown threats under environmentally relevant conditions that are caused by their special properties and that cannot be scaled from larger particles.

Specific objectives of the conference will be:

  • Discuss environmental exposure of nanomaterials including their release from products and their detection in complex matrices.
  • Outline transport and transformation pathways of nanomaterials
  • Discuss uptake and effects in organisms and food-chains
  • Present the progress towards environmental risk assessment of nanomaterials
  • Identify nano-specific issues in exposure, fate, effects and risks
  • Discuss the relevance of engineered nanomaterials compared to natural nanoscale particles

    Date and Place :

    The conference will take place at the Conference Centre Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland, the venue of choice for Congressi Stefano Franscini, the international conference platform of ETH Zurich. The center is located on a beautiful hill on top of the lake town of Ascona, in Southern Switzerland.
