ISSA prevention event
XIX World Congress on Safety and Health at Work - Nanotechnology Symposium and Training Course
10 – 12 September 2011 Istanbul, Turkey
The ISSA Chemistry Section will actively contribute to the programme of the XIX World Congress on Safety and Health in September 2011, in particular during a symposium on the broad field of nanotechnolgy. With its motto of "smaller and smaller, faster and faster" instead of "higher and higher, further and further", nanotechnology is increasingly considered to be the technology of the future. Nanotechnology is made up of the manufacture, investigation and application of the smallest structures, which reveal partially unforeseen properties and open up new technical applications. As with every new technology, however, it is also vital to carefully observe any possible effects on people and the environment.
