Accelerating nanotech innovations through a safer-by-design approach



7-12 September 2020, Archamps, France (Greater Geneva)


Nanomaterials can potentially play a key role in reducing our dependence on extracted raw materials.


But how do we assess the potential risk posed by the long-term accumulation of nanoparticles to the environment and to human health?


Over 9 demanding days, this exciting course introduces young scientists and engineers to the tools and strategies required to take up the safer-by-design challenge. These are simultaneously put into practice by participants in interdisciplinary groups, tasked with designing the business model of a nano-enabled innovation project.


The School is in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the UN, and the objectives of EIT Raw Materials, which is the largest community in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its aims are to boost competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation, new educational approaches and guided entrepreneurship.
