Written by InterNano
April 29, 2009

Conference Logo National Nanomanufacturing Network: The June 9-11, 2009 Conference on the Environmental Implications and Applications of Nanotechnology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst will convene leading nano researchers, nano policy and regulatory experts, practitioners, manufacturers and users to better understand the environmental aspects of nanotechnology -- from characterization, fate and transport, and environmental health and safety, to green nanotechnology and new nanotechnology applications for pollution control and remediation.

Sessions will address both new research findings and policy and regulatory issues in three concurrent tracks over the course of three days. The conference will feature keynote presentations from leading nano researchers and regulatory experts, 78 platforms presentations, plenary sessions, poster sessions, and special events. The Conference will conclude with a special plenary panel of experts representing academia, industry, NGO, and government who will draw upon the conference sessions and their various perspectives to discuss effective science-based decision making for the safe use of nanotechnology.
