New website for SweNanoSafe

SweNanoSafe is a Swedish national platform for nanosafety that was launched in 2016, and now they have a new website ready: www.swenanosafe.se. Here you can find knowledge about nanomaterials on behalf of the government.

In order to promote safe use and handling of manufactured nanomaterials, the platform aims to strengthen the cooperation between different stakeholders to ensure knowledge exchange in the field of nanosafety.

Workshop to characterize nanoparticles

How can one characterize and measure nanoparticles to be able to trace them in nature? At the research station in Kristineberg in Sweden, researchers were gathered to a consortium meeting and to attend a workshop on November 16th. Within the Mistra Environmental Nanosafety program they tried on scanning electron microscopy and laser instruments.

Workshops for classes in Lund

Researchers in Mistra Environmental Nanosafety arranged workshops for students in Lund.

During 20 weeks from mid-October 2017 and forward, Tommy Cedervall and Mikael Ekvall, researchers at Dept of Biochemistry and Structural Biology at Lunds University, are meeting with students from high schools in Lund.

– They will get the opportunity to do some experiments with nanoparticles. The aim is to create interest for our work, and for science and research in general, says Tommy Cedervall.
