Here’s what just some of our ANC 2016 participants have said


I realized that even a seemingly good thing will have its potential risks hidden in its behind, just like an old saying said “every coin has two sides”. I think I will pay much attention on another side of nanotechnology during my future research.

Xiuguo CHEN — China

I had the possibility to broaden my horizons and leave my comfort zone by positioning myself in front of a crowd to present as well as participate actively in a debate.

Isabella WINTER — Austria

ANC provided the very useful information in the field of risk assessments of new technologies and sustainability. These are the subjects that I never think about them before.


It gives me a broader perspective on my and also on others’ research work, not technically but on the safety and sustainability impact it could lead to, for our future generations.
