Workshop "Engineered Nanoparticles in the Environment. Analyses, Occurence and Impacts"

Today’s emerging substances will probably be part of tomorrow’s regulated substances. The Network of reference laboratories, research centres and related organisations for monitoring of emerging environmental substances (NORMAN) is an independent and competent platform in the field of emerging substances. NORMAN facilitates an exchange of information, debate and research collaborations at a global level with official recognition from institutional agencies of the EU.

The workshop on “Engineered Nanoparticles in the Environment” will discuss the future approaches in the emerging field of nanoparticles. The workshop addresses, amongst others, issues related to analytical techniques for nanoparticles in environmental matrices, the fate of engineered nanoparticles in the aquatic environment and during wastewater treatment, their interactions with inorganic and organic pollutants as well as their potential ecotoxicological impacts on biota.

The main objective of the meeting will be to discuss and evaluate the future requirements with regard to a profound environmental assessment of engineered nanoparticles.
