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

xiuguo_chen

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
isabella_winter

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
mona_alibolandi

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.

Mona ALIBOLANDI — Iran
tan_Lee_kheng

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.

Kheng Lee TAN — Singapore
