Environmental, Health & Safety Issues in Nanomaterials

 

The EHS Workshop was hosted June 9-10, 2008 in the Sheraton Hotel in Crystal City, Virginia. This workshop addressed the measurement and data needs of industry, regulatory agencies and academia. Participants explored and prioritized needs and developed an action plan to deal with the issues.

 

ACerS hosted a followup webinar on this topic. Information is available at Ceramic Materials Web Seminars or you can purchase the seminar.
