The vision for the South African nanoscience and nanotechnology school is to create a pool of nanoscientists sufficiently trained to conduct nanoscience research. The theme for 2016 is ‘Nanotechnology health, safety and environmental risk research: Nanotechnology HSE is a necessity and not an impediment in the advancement of nanotechnology’.
The school will focus on training emerging Masters students, PhD students and experienced scientists. To achieve this the school will bring together experts in the field (local and international) to present courses, covering topics on introduction to Nano HSE risk research, hazard identification, exposure assessment, risk assessment and its challenges.
