Nanotechnology: 2008 Relevant Meetings Archive
Grantee Research Project Results
- International Environmental Nanotechnology Conference: Applications and Implications - October 7 - 9, 2008, Nanomaterials present new opportunities to improve our ability to detect, monitor, control, and clean up environmental pollutants and contaminants and potential new risks to human health and the environment. The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world to discuss the nanotechnology applications for remediation of environmental contaminants; the implications of releasing manufactured nanoparticles into the environment, and pollution control and nano-enabled sensing. The international character of the meeting is highlighted by the nanotechnology experts from Australia, France, Ireland, Japan, Korea, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States who will provide keynote commentary on focus areas of the conference agenda .
- Interagency Workshop on the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology - November 19 - 21, 2008, The objective of this interagency nano grantees meeting is to highlight the latest research results on a variety of engineered nanomaterials. Grantees from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the National Institute of Environment Health Sciences (NIEHS) will present research results exploring the potential effects these materials may have on human health and the environment. A secondary objective of this meeting is to facilitate communication among stakeholders in this area and to stimulate researchers and other involved in this area to consider the potential environment impacts of their work. The grantees presenting at this meeting were awarded through EPA's Joint Nano solicitations with other agencies.
