  • Workshop Identificatie asbestverdacht terrein, uitvoeren asbestonderzoek en asbestherkenning

    Recent werd een stappenplan uitgewerkt voor de identificatie van een asbestverdacht terrein. Dit stappenplan zal opgenomen worden in de code van goede praktijk voor OBO, BBO en risicoanalyse voor asbestverontreiniging (CGP asbest). Naar aanleiding hiervan willen OVAM en VITO u graag uitnodigen voor deze workshop waarin het stappenplan zal worden toegelicht. Daarnaast zal de uitwerking van de bemonsteringsstrategie ter hoogte van een asbestverdachte zone (CGP asbest) en het nemen van stalen voor asbestanalyse (CMA/1/A.20) kort besproken worden, en zal er in de namiddag ruim tijd voorzien worden voor een (her)opfrissing van de vaardigheden voor het herkennen van asbest onder veldomstandigheden.

  • Nanomaterials in Biomedical Sciences

    The tremendous potential of nanomaterials for biomedical applications has long been recognized. The past decade, the use of nanomaterials has been extensively exploited in different bio-fields, including drug delivery, (pre-) clinical imaging, in vitro and in vivo diagnosis and theragnosis. Besides significant steps forward, it remains a crucial challenge to translate nanomaterials in biomedical and clinical applications. In this 2-days workshop it is the intention to highlight the potential of nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
