NANO-Transfer - International Conference & Winter School

19-20 October 2017, Aachen, Germany


Various carbon-based manufactured nanomaterials (C-MNMs) are used in many products in our daily life. In all trophic levels this kind of particles have been already detected, but appropriate methods of detection and assessment of their effects still need to be developed and improved.

The aim of the conference is the international presentation of the results of the ERA-SINN project NANO-Transfer. Furthermore, different presentations and posters regarding nanoparticles and microplastics will be shown.

As part of an international winter school, PhD candidates and students learn methods for the detection of fate and effects of nanoparticles. 

Some of the questions and topics focused on at this conference include:

  • What are the newest detection methods? 
  • How is it possible to analyse bioaccumulation and biomagnification? 
  • How could micro- and mescocosm studies help to analyze the effects on environmental systems?
  • Which steps are necessary for an international comparison of the results?

This and many more questions and topics will be discussed at the NANO-Transfer conference in Aachen (19.10.2017 - 20.10.2017). 

Venue: RWTH Aachen University, SuperC – 6th floor, Templergraben 57, 52062 Aachen, Germany
