RiskGONE partners take part in events across the continent on European Researchers Night

On 27 November 2020, researchers across Europe will meet the public (mostly online) and showcase their work through hands-on experiments, science shows, games, quizzes, competitions, exhibitions, and digital activities. It’s the European Researchers’ Night!

RiskGONE partners are participating in some of these important events, aimed to shorten the gap between research and the general public by raising awareness on how different kinds of nanomaterials are used in daily applications and how we can manage the risks that some of them pose to the environment and human health.


Dechema LIVE Session 1 (13:00-14:00 CET)

Dechema LIVE Session 2 (18:00-19:00 CET)

Was ist Nanotechnologie und wo wird sie eingesetzt? Wer entscheidet, ob die Produkte sicher sind?

Nanotechnologie ermöglicht neue Produkteigenschaften und bringt neuartige Anwendungen mit sich. Verbraucher*innen finden vermehrt Nanotechnologie in unterschiedlichen Produkten wie z.B. Kosmetika oder Elektronik. Doch wie sicher sind die Produkte für Mensch und Umwelt, und wer entscheidet das? Wieviel Risiko nehmen wir in Kauf, wenn es um neue, innovative Produkte geht? Wie findet man sich zurecht im Informationsdschungel im digitalen Zeitalter? Diese Fragen erforscht das europäische Projekt “Gov4Nano”. Tauschen Sie sich mit uns aus!

Veranstaltungsformat: Workshop (teilweise in in englischer Sprache)


15:30 – 17:00 Uhr

Besonders geeignet für: Jugendliche
