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.

Single nanoparticle mapping paves the way for better nanotechnology

Single nanoparticle mapping paves the way for better nanotechnology

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the Technical University of Denmark have developed a method that makes it possible to map the individual responses of nanoparticles in different situations and contexts. The results pave the way for better nanomaterials and safer nanotechnology and were recently published in the journal Nature Communications.

Workshop with authorities, academia and industry

The Swedish national platform for nanosafety at Swetox, SweNanoSafe, gathered about 40 representatives from authorities, academia, industry and also environmental and unionorganisations for a full-day workshop. The headline was. "Nanosafety - how to secure future nanotechnology".

The purpose was to identify current obstacles to a safe management of nanomaterials and also actions to improve the situation. The day also served as a first meeting for the members of SweNanoSafe's expertpanel.
