NANOSAFETY: FUTURE-PROOFING INDUSTRY INNOVATION
The NIA is delighted to announce its 2017 Symposium and AGM, hosted on March 30 in Brussels, in the heart of the beautiful museum and Royal Park area.
Regulatory preparedness is the ongoing priority for innovators and users of nanotechnology and with increasing focus on Safe by Design, members will stay ahead of the game.
A nano community
The symposium will feature speakers from the European Commission, European Observatory for Nanomaterials, plus case studies from members and expert speakers for discussion throughout the day.
In addition to detailed review of latest regulatory developments from across the globe, the symposium will also focus on how companies futureproof their commercial development through Safer by Design. Hear from Members and about latest design tools/processes available to support a safe and sustainable pipeline.
