We are informing you that, due to the current COVID pandemic and the restrictions imposed by the UK and Scottish Governments on face to face meetings, the NanoTox 2021 Organising Committee has taken the difficult decision to move the conference to a Virtual Conference to ensure the safety of our attendees and invited speakers.

The Virtual Conference remains aimed at personnel from research and academic institutions as well as from industry, government agencies, and other relevant organisations interested in:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Hazard and risk assessment of nanomaterials and advanced materials, and their governance
  • Alternative methods for nanomaterial hazard testing, release and exposure.
  • safe(r) by design (SbD) of nanomaterials and advanced materials.

The 2021 Virtual Conference is jointly organised by three leading EU Horizon 2020 Projects, BIORIMA, PATROLS and GRACIOUS, focusing on development of novel tools for evaluating human and environmental hazard, and strategies for nonmaterial characterisation, classification, grouping and read-across for risk analysis.

We look forward to welcoming delegates to the conference with international experts from Europe, the United States and Asia confirmed as speakers.

More details on the updated registration fees, format and programme will be announced in due course.

Kind regards,

Shareen, Lang and Vicki
