Amherst, NH (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
Vicon Publishing Inc., a leading B2B media company, today announced that it will be offering an audio/Web seminar on "Environmental, Health and Safety Aspects of Nanotechnology - Implications for the R&D in (Small) Companies" on September 7, 2006 at 1:00pm EDT. The featured speaker will be Dr. Steffi Friedrichs, a nanotechnology consultant at The Technology Partnership plc.
This audio/Web seminar will demonstrate how nanotechnology companies can obtain nanotoxicology data on their materials, implement appropriate safety measures during the R&D process and provide responsible risk management for their clients and customers.
The growing hype of nanotechnology has lead to an unprecedented research and development effort in both the public and private sectors. Very little is known, however, about the interaction of man-made nanostructured materials and living organisms, as studies of nanotoxicology are gaining increasing interest, but are still in their infancy.
An ISO committee on nanotechnology has just started looking into creating an appropriate nomenclature and a potential standardization of nanometer-sized materials, but a proper legislation of the environmental, health and safety aspects of nanotechnology will take years to be implemented. Seminar attendees will learn what steps they can take now to leverage future opportunities.
The audio/Web seminar will last approximately an hour and costs $179 per telephone/computer line. For details and registration information, visit http://www.viconpublishing.com/audio.asp or call Liz Stitt at (603) 672-9997, x-109.
