Engagement and Outreach
The Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk seeks to translate ideas and information
to and engage in dialogue with external groups with interests in the broadly defined
area nanoscience and environment. These parties include the public, students at all
levels, the scientific community, government and the private sector.
The CENR organized the 19th International Symposium on Field- and Flow-Based Separations
(FFF2018), which will was held in May 2018, in Columbia, South Carolina, USA.
As one of the globally leading conferences on molecular and nanoscale separations,
the FFF2018 brought together scientists, engineers, regulators and industry concerned
with separation and characterization of: manufactured nanoparticles and nanomaterials;
environmental nanoparticles, colloids and particles; natural and synthetic macromolecules;
proteins, biomacromolecules and biomarkers; pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceutics and
drug carrier systems; cells and viruses; and food and agriculture.
2014 Nano Conference
The CENR organized the 9th International Conference on the Environmental Effects of
Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials, which was held from September 7th –11th, 2014 in
Columbia, South Carolina, USA.
The 9th ICEENN brought together researchers, regulators and industry to discuss the
potential hazards and risks of current and future applications in the key sector of
nanotechnology, along with mechanisms to bring about risk reduction while maintaining
the economic and social benefits of the sector.
