NANOCULTURE final event “Risk assessment and mitigation of the presence of engineered NANOmaterials in Atlantic aquaCULTURE”

July 25, 2022

The final event for the NANOCULTURE project will take place at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory on September 22nd, at 09h15 WEST and is open to aquaculture professionals, scientific profiles (analytical chemists, physical chemists, and molecular biologists) and anyone who finds curiosity in this area of study. This event will focus on the final results of the project.

You will have the opportunity to network with the Project Officer from the Atlantic Area Joint Secretariat, who will speak about future opportunities in the Atlantic Area programme and similar projects. Also, you’ll be able to participate in a workshop with EFSA, NIA and Blue Frog Scientific representatives, where the discussion will be about the future environmental impact of nanomaterials.

The objective of NANOCULTURE is to advance knowledge, risk assessment, and mitigation of the environmental presence of the most-used engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in market products: titanium dioxide (TiO2) and silver (Ag).

You can submit your abstract by September 15th in the following subjects:

  • Quantification, identification and localization of the nanoparticles within a single cell and tissue;

  • Bioaccessibility and bioavailability of nanoparticles from aquaculture species;

  • Evaluation of molecular biology effects of the nanoparticle on seafood;

  • (Bio)sensors and analytical technologies for nanoparticle detection in aquaculture species and water.

If you can’t come to INL on September 22nd, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a webinar in your language! (more details and link TBD).
