NANOSAFETY, 5 ECTS CREDITS
LUND UNIVERSITY COMMISSIONED EDUCATION

This course is given for postgraduate students (PhD students) at Lund University, but is also offered for external participants as commissioned education.

AIM
The aim of the course is to mediate knowledge of safe manufacturing and handling of engineered nanoparticles and of nanomaterials i.e. materials containing nano-particles, in the perspective of human health and of environment. Aspects such as safety important particle characteristics, exposure- and emission assessment, nano toxicology, precautionary principle, safe-by-design, human-technology interaction, risk assessment, risk management, risk communication, life cycle analysis, legisla-tion, and ethical aspects will be covered.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
To promote network building and enable knowledge exchange, the course is open for both PhD students and representatives from industrial and governmental sectors.

CONTENT
Particle properties (size, shape, aspect-ratio, solubility, chemical composition), lung deposition and clearance, emissions, exposure, toxicity, risk management, human-technology interaction, biomarkers, engineering controls and personal protection, risk- and safety communication, food chain transport, life cycle analyses, ethical aspects, and legislation.
