Nanomaterials & Sub-micron Particles Technology Day 2023


Nanomaterials & Sub-micron Particles Technology day 2023

In September 2023 we will organize in close collaboration with a number of partner companies the Nano Materials & Sub-micron Particles Technology day covering different themes associated with small particles, their peculiar properties and applications, regulations, health, safety and exposure, and measurement possibilities.
Institutions that have already confirmed to contribute to the lecture program are TSI, TNO RAPID, Malvern/Sysmex, CPS Europe, VSParticle, University of Munster, Joint Research Centre EC, TNO CBRN, and Delft Solids Solutions.


Lectures and case studies delivered during this seminar will be devoted to e.g.


  • What to know about nano concerning their properties and applications?
  • Nano in relation to safety and workplace exposure
  • Legislation and regulation associated with the use of small particles
  • Measurement techniques for small particles in the air: aerosols
  • Dust and nano dust assessment
  • How to identify and characterize sub-micron particles in products

The seminar offers an interactive program designed for anyone who is working in the field of powder and particle handling, processing and optimization, formulation, product development, particle performance, health, safety and regulations. As we have scheduled a variety of lectures that are applicable to all industries ranging from life science, food, feed, pharmaceutical and cosmetics to chemicals, as well as regulation, this seminar is of interest to a very broad audience including regulatory officers. The main goal of this event is sharing knowledge on the emerging theme of nano materials and small particles.


The seminar ends with a networking event in the hotel bar.
