Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Helsinki, Finland
The European Commission, the U.S. National Nanotechnology Coordination Office, and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health are very pleased to announce the organisation of this second Joint EU-U.S. Workshop on Nanosafety.
The purpose of these workshops is to further promote and foster EU-U.S. cooperation in the domain of nanosafety research. After the first meeting, held in Washington, DC in March 2011, the main aim of this second Joint Workshop is to develop the six Communities of Research (CoR) that have been launched and to bring them to a concrete level of organisation and activity.
A full description of the CoRs and information on joining these communities is given in the flyer, which is available to download here.
This Joint Workshop is open to scientists; policy makers; regulators; administrators; decision makers from academia, research institutes, and industry; and authorities from the EU and the U.S.
A draft of the Workshop programme and more information on the themes, background, and organisation is available at:
EU-U.S. cooperation in this area is coordinated by the European Union (European Commission / NanoSafety Cluster – http://www.nanosafetycluster.eu/) and the United States National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (http://www.nano.gov/about-nni/nnco). Further information is available at http://us-eu.org/ .
