1st Sustainable Nanotechnology School

Understanding the environmental, health and safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials to foster their sustainable applications:

A COST MODENA, SUN and Guidenano training school

School purpose

The achievement of safe nanoproducts requires an understanding of the properties, biological interactions, fate, risks and environmental impacts of manufactured nanomaterials. The Sustainable Nanotechnology School aims to transfer the state of the art knowledge on these aspects from key experts to the new generation nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals. In order to do so the school will highlight the best available experimental and modeling approaches and practices for physicochemical characterization, (eco)toxicity testing, exposure, risk, and lifecycle assessment of nanotechnologies, taking various stakeholder perspectives and ethical issues into account. The course is structured to balance breadth and depth in these diverse topics, as well as build an integrative understanding of them, while providing an interactive learning environment and direct access to key experts from Europe and the United States. The Sustainable Nanotechnology School is organized in the frame of the major EU FP7 projects SUN and GUIDEnano and the MODENA Cost Action.

Target audience:

The 1st Sustainable Nanotechnology School is especially designed for personnel from research and academic institutions as well as from industry, governmental agencies and hospital departments. The School is aimed at senior researchers, young scientists, PhD students and in fact anyone dealing with nanosciences, nanotechnologies and risk assessment of nanotechnology.

School programme and course organization

The school programme will focus on six main subjects:

  • (Eco)toxicological Risk Assessment
  • Exposure Assessment and Monitoring
  • Life Cycle Impact Assessment of nanomaterials
  • Safe-by-Design nanomanufacturing
  • Industrial and Regulatory Perspectives on Nanotechnology
  • Ethical issues in nanotechnology


The registration fees include: School participation, course materials (slides, reference papers, journal club articles), welcome cocktail, lunches, coffee breaks and a social event. Hotel booking and dinners are not included.

The SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015 is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss research findings on the interface between nanotechnology and sustainability. Our view of sustainability includes not only its environmental dimensions, but also the societal and economic ones. The conference program will address the critical aspects of sustainable nanotechnology such as life cycle thinking; environmental release and fate of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) ; environmental, occupational and consumer exposure to ENMs; environmental and human health impacts of ENMs; safe production, handling and disposal of ENMs; regulatory and industrial decision support for sustainable nanotechnology; nanotechnology applications for sustainability; societal implications of nanotechnology; curriculum and training for sustainable nanotechnology.

The conference will be held from 9-11 March 2015 in Venice, Italy. It is being jointly organized by the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO), a USA based non-profit organization dedicated to advancing sustainable nanotechnology, and two large EU FP7 nanosafety projects GUIDENANO. Perspectives on the implications and applications of nanotechnology will be provided by leading experts in EU and USA. We also hope to foster new multi-sector collaborations in nanotechnology.
