Nanomaterials have a huge potential for innovation. What often stands in the way of wider application, however, are concerns about interaction with living organisms. Anyone who uses nanomaterials or wants to do so in the future must necessarily look into their properties and find out about possible dangers.
The contactpointnano.ch initiative offers guidance throughout Switzerland and supports companies in the safe handling of nanomaterials. This initiative will be presented at the "Nano-safety" matarial meeting and further lectures on the subject of nanotechnology from practice will be offered.
