Special session on
Advanced nanomaterials, technologies, and analytical techniques for detecting and monitoring of emerging environmental pollutants

We are pleased to announce this special session featuring talks by researchers from the National Institute for Research and Development of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies – INCDTIM, Romania, ”Iuliu Hațieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy (UMF), Romania, SINTEF AS, Norway, and Nanom Mems SRL, Romania, and open to participants from outside this consortium that are interested in nanosciences and nanotechnologies, analytical techniques and technologies, detection and monitoring of environmental pollutants.

The special session is organized within the framework of the project Nanostructured microfluidic analytical platform for dual SERS-electrochemical detection of emerging environmental pollutants - POLSENS financed by Norway Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 and co-financed by UEFISCDI. The objective of the project is to develop nanomaterials-based, portable sensing platforms able to quickly and reliably detect environmental pollutants in a highly affordable manner by simultaneous Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) and electrochemistry (EC).

The session will be held on Friday, 22nd of September 2023, starting at 9:00 AM, in Sala Saturn within Univers T Hotel.
