Ne3LS Network International Conference 2012, Montreal, Canada
November 1-2, 2012, Montreal, Quebec, Canada


The Network on ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social issues regarding nanotechnology development (Ne3LS) is hosting an international conference on The Responsible Development of Nanotechnology: Challenges and Perspectives. This conference offers a unique sponsorship opportunity. Designed specifically for contributors in nanotechnology, it is the only conference of its kind inCanada to date.

The mission of the Ne3LS Research Network is to participate in the advancement, sharing, and tracking of nanotechnology development. In an effort to increase knowledge regarding the impact of nanotechnologies, the network also funds research projects in partnership with the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité au travail (IRSST). In addition training awards at the Master’s and doctoral level by theQuebec research funding agencies allow the network to support and develop expertise in this area.



All sponsors will be acknowledged on the website of the Ne3LS Network International Conference 2012.
