Greener Nano 2008 conference: Nanoscience for a sustainable future
(Nanowerk News) ONAMI and SNNI presents the Greener Nano 2008 Conference: Nanoscience for a Sustainable Future, March 10-11, 2008 at Hewlett-Packard Company.
As nanotechnology advances, many questions arise regarding putative effects of nascent nanomaterials on the environment and health. How do we make the right decisions in the face of these uncertainties? The organizers' goals are to develop proactive design strategies that enhance performance yet minimize risk.
This conference focuses on cutting edge research in sustainable nanomaterials design, the latest developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and potential biological impacts of nanomaterials.
SNNI faculty will also present their latest research advances in developing greener nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing processes.
This conference focuses on educating stakeholders on the benefits of using a proactive approach to developing responsible nanotechnologies.
The 2nd day features a keynote from our AFRL Program Manager and concludes with a technical session describing research progress of the Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative in designing environmentally benign nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing processes.
