Conferences and work-shop organization

Work-Shop: Frontiers in Silica (2015)

Frontiers in Silica Worskhop 2015, March 19- 20, 2015 Chalmers University of Technology, organized by Michael Persson, AkzoNobel and Chalmers University of Technology. Several MISTRA program scientists presented results at this workshop.

Work-Shop: Symposium “Experimental and theoretical studies of nanoparticles and their interactions with aqueous solutions and organic molecules” (2015)

Mini-symposium targeting processes at the water-mineral interface at the University of Gothenburg, Organized by the Caroline Jonsson Research Group, Environmental Nanochemistry, Dept. of Chemistry & Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg, 22 September 2015.

Conference: 2nd Nanosafety Forum for Young Scientists (2016)

Prof. Fadeel organized a meeting for young scientists in the field of nanosafety in Visby, Gotland in 2016 – a meeting where all the oral and poster presentations are held by students and post docs. It is noteworthy that a PhD student from the MISTRA program at KTH won the award for best poster presentation. The conference was organized by the EU Nanosafety Cluster and the FP7-eNanoMapper project.

Work-Shop: Nanomaterials Characterization Workshop (2017)

This workshop took place at the Sven Lovén Marine Research Center, in Kristineberg, Fiskebäckskil, November 15 – 16, 2017. The workshop consisted of lectures on the theory behind analytical techniques, sample preparation methods for the characterization of nanomaterials and hands-on demonstration of state of the art equipment available to characterize nanoparticles in the environmental nanochemistry lab of Prof. Hassellöv. The lectures were conducted by several partners in Mistra Environmental Nanosafety (GU, AkzoNobel, KTH). Participants were students and researchers in the Mistra program together with some external participants. The participants and the teachers were very satisfied with the joint learning experience.

Work-Shop: Delivering safe nanotechnology to the market (2018)

Prof. Fadeel has been actively involved in the EU nanosafety cluster ( for many years and he organized and co-chaired a one-day workshop in June 2017 at the EURONANOFORUM 2018 meeting in Malta. The workshop entitled “delivering safe nanotechnology to the market” was dedicated to discussion and interaction with nano-sector players from the European Commission, regulatory authorities, large and small companies, and academic researchers, including representatives of several EU-funded projects. The workshop was co-organized with the Nanotechnology Industry Association and Dr. Georgios Katalagarianakis from DG Research & Innovation of the European Commission presented the opening remarks.

Conference: Towards Nanotech Safety (2018)

As a final activity after the first 4 years of Mistra Environmental Nanosafety a scientific conference will be held in Gothenburg 13-15 November. During these days the results from the program and related topics of nanotech safety and toxicological will be discussed. Prominent external speakers have also been invited to give an even wider perspective with keynote speaker Prof. Mark Wiesner from Duke University, USA. Stakeholders in the field of nanosafety will also be invited to discuss how regulation and policies of the future should be constructed to allow for an effective and safe innovation and development of nanomaterials.
