Grado Zero Espace, in collaboration with the rest of the Consortium of the NEPHH Project (www.nephh-fp7.eu), will be in charge of organizing the Workshop that will be held in Milan on November, 18th, within the "Nano Future Expo - 3rd International Exhibition on Nanotechnologies" (www.hitechexpo.eu/en_hte/index_nfu.asp).
Especially focused on Nanotechnology Industry, NEPHH's Workshop will provide a multi-stakeholder forum for presenting and discussing the main outcomes in advanced research concerning the human health and safety as well as environmental issues surrounding nano-enabled products from a Life Cycle Assessment perspective, thus promoting the dialogue between science, industry and society. Industrial stakeholders will benefit from the attendance to the Workshop with an increase in their awareness of the potential risks of their workers as well as of effective measures to protect their workforce.
The program of the Workshop (planned to start at 9:30 and close at 13:15, with an open networking lunch) includes a series of oral presentations held by highly qualified invited speakers from different Nanotechnology related areas, from industry to research institutions, as well as a poster session with relevant scientific outcomes presentations. This poster session is specifically thought and planned in order to warrant the highest possibilities and opportunities of better explanations and/or deeper investigations on specific topics, on direct request of participants; in this way, the Workshop provides/becomes an instrument for the creation of an interactive exchange of ideas and information that could be of much interest of the potential participants.
Group of three Croatian T-Pot management Board members (Project coordinator Sandra Bischof Vukušić, Equipment Manager Tanja Pušić and Training Manager Edita Vujasinović), two German MB representatives (Petra Franitza and Romy Naumann) and Polish representative in MB (Malgorzata Zimniewska) have visited partnering institution Grado Zero Espace at their new premises at Montelupo, Italy.
The first shape memory shirt, developed by Grado Zero Espace with the weaved fabric Oricalco, was inserted in the exposition at the Museum of Science and Industry of Chicago.
