A joint one-day meeting between RSC Toxicology group and the UK NanoSafety Group.  This meeting is looking to provide information and examples of best practice in the successful and safe commercialisation of nanomaterial based products. Those who should attend include: safety professionals, compliance managers, plant managers, general managers and those working with nanomaterials in industry or have an interest in the safe production of nanomaterial based products and services. It is also looking to attract academics who may be seeking to “go commercial” with a nano based product.
