SERENADE partners are associated with a large offer of university-level education in the field of nanoscience and nano-eco-toxicology with specific focus on health and environmental impact, Health-safety-environment & risk management, public health, bioengineering as well as entrepreneurship (in the domain of ‘nano’). With such an involvement, partners are already introducing the concepts of nanosciences and nanotoxicology to traditional curricula.

SERENADE develops a National Nanosafety (e)-Learning Community and Network to provide a unique opportunity for designing new approaches to teaching concepts of nanosciences, toxicology, ecotoxicology, eco-design, innovative business models and management practices.

Educational movies 'Have you heard?'

The series "Have you heard?" Is aimed at young audiences (15/18) and all science-seekers, in a slightly offbeat manner.

2019 « Safer By Design » day - LabEx SERENADE, Master CNano et C’Nano IDF

Objectif de la journée: Le LabEx SERENADE (Safe(r) Ecodesign Research and Education applied to NAnomaterial DEvelopment) regroupe des partenaires académiques et industriels autour de l’élaboration de nanomatériaux surs et innovants.

2018 « Safer By Design » day - LabEx SERENADE, Master CNano

Objectif de la journée: Les nanomatériaux présentent à la fois des potentiels d'innovation importants et des risques associés au caractère nanométrique.

« Safer by Design » Labex SERENADE- Master CNano 2017

At the national level, the project “CNANO-Safer by design” (Nantes Univ.) was funded and implemented. It consisted in organizing one-day awareness conference session towards CNANO master students.

Indeed the CNANO program ‘Nanosciences, Nanomatériaux, Nanotechnologies’ trains students on the synthesis, characterisation and modelling of properties of nanomaterials.

The aim of the project “CNANO-Safer by design” is twofold: 1) organization of one day conference to introduce all scientific aspects related to the safer by design 2) organization of one training session on the NANOCARAC and PNS platforms (Grenoble) during the annual study trip.

The one-day awareness conference took place the 7th of January 2017 in Nantes. 15 master students and around 30 researchers have attended the workshop.
