What is the Safer Nano Design summer school?
This summer school is an accelerated learning programme proposed by EIT RawMaterials partner institutions and the European Scientific Institute.
The course addresses the complex challenge of the substitution of critical raw materials through the use of nanotechnology, promoting a ‘safety-by-design’ concept, which seeks to minimise environmental and human health risks related to nanotechnology.
Participants will take part in the following activities:
- Industrial and entrepreneurial case studies
- Multidisciplinary group-work on innovation projects
- Core presentations on nanodesign, lifecycle
- Pitching in front of a panel of experts from industry, academia, startups and business incubators
- Workshop, lab and computer practicals.
