NanoStreeM Satellite Workshop

The NanoStreeM project focuses on identifying gaps in the understanding and  promotion of knowledge of the occupational hazards related to the use of nanomaterials in the semiconductor industry. Understanding properties of nanoparticles and nano-functionalized materials and how they behave in living systems is a relatively new area of scientific study. So a precautionary approach is required when handling and using these materials in circumstances where exposure to nanomaterials cannot be excluded. The workshop will explore some of the findings of NanoStreeM in the nanomaterial trajectory investigation for a typical semiconductor FAB. Applicability of different risk assessment methodologies will be presented in comparison. Finally an expert panel will discuss the ways to identify topics to be introduced in curricula dedicated to nanosafety.
