The 6th International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) will provide a high quality of scientific forum for scientists and practitioners to present and discuss the interaction between technical advances and societal, occupational and environmental impacts in the field of nanotechnology.
The first symposium was organized by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and held under co-sponsorship of the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in 2004. The 2nd-5th symposia were held in University of Minnesota, (Minneapolis, USA), 2005, National Chiao Tung University (Taipei, Taiwan), 2007, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (Helsinki, Finland), 2009 and University of Massachusetts (Boston, USA), 2011. Thus this series of symposia has been recognized as one of the premier conferences related with safety of nanotechnology. The aim of the symposium is to share the latest knowledge on risks related with nanotechnology to reduce these potential risks.
