The vision for the South African nanoscience and nanotechnology school is to create a pool of nanoscientists sufficiently trained to conduct nanoscience research. The theme for 2013 is “Nanotechnology: Impact on water treatment and the environment”
The school will focus on training emerging Masters, PhD and experienced
scientists. The school will bring together experts in the field (local
and international) to present courses, covering topics on water filtration and adsorption,
and the impact of nanotechnology on the environment. Participants will have an opportunity
for hands-on simulation on instruments used. Discussions and debates will be conducted
around other issues related to the theme.
