Engineered NP in environmental systems – Data handling and interdisciplinary data evaluation

 

12th - 14th Feb.ruary, 2018

Landau in der Pfalz, Germany

 

Internano

 

The InterNano Spring School addresses  interdisciplinary research to assess the environmental fate and effects of engineered nanoparticles. Topics include on the one hand nanoparticles in close-to-environment-systems and on the other hand data handling and interdisciplinary data evaluation. Studying NP beyond the pure lab scale requires a broad and multidisciplinary knowledge and a huge portion of experience. Therefore, this spring school aims at bringing together young interdisciplinary researchers in the field of nanoscience. Participants will benefit from lectures by experienced scientists as well as from exchanging information between each other. In a secondary part, data handling of different disciplines will be addressed by courses including experimental design and statistical analysis as well as scientific writing. The workshop will consist of lectures and exercises and provide ample room for discussion.

Topics

  • Interdisciplinary investigation of NP fate

1) Mesocosm studies

2) Modeling

3) Organic coatings on NP in the environment

  • Interdisciplinary data handling

1) Experimental design

2) Statistical analysis

3) Scientific writing
