ESF Summer School in Nanomedicine 2007
10 June 2007
Ends: 15 June 2007
In early 2003, the European Science Foundation (http://www.esf.org) launched its Scientific Forward Look on Nanomedicine focusing on medical applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The Forward Look involved leading European experts and led to a definition of the current status of the field and debates on strategic policy issues.The ESF Forward Look Report on Nanomedicine was published in 2005 and recommended the establishment of Pan-European conferences and training that was truly interdisciplinary and covering the broad field of Nanomedicine. A first and highly successful ESF Research Conference on Nanomedicine was recently held at Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain, 15th-20th September 2006. This will be followed by the first ESF Summer School in Nanomedicine that will take place in South Wales in the summer of 2007.
