São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Nanotechnology, Agriculture and Environment

The São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Nanotechnology, Agriculture & Environment (SPSAS NanoAgri&Enviro) will happen from July 3rd to 15th, 2023, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials, in Campinas, São Paulo state, Brazil.

The program will comprise didactic activities programmed among theoretical interactive classes, practical experiments (hands-on), presentation of research results (poster sections and seminars) and technical visits to the world-class facilities and specialized laboratories from the following institutions in São Paulo state:

Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas.
University of São Paulo (USP) in Piracicaba.
São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Sorocaba.
University of Sorocaba (UNISO) in Sorocaba.
Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) in São Carlos.
Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) in São Carlos.

The SPSAS NanoAgri&Enviro will be ministered by professors and researchers who have solid experience in higher education, scientific leadership, and research excellence in nanosciences, agricultural and environmental studies.

Designed to meet an increasing level of content depth and complexity, the SPSAS NanoAgri&Enviro will cover the following topics: i) Nanotechnology, innovation, and sustainability; ii) Synthesis, functionalization, and characterization of nanomaterials; iii) Characterization of nanoparticles in complex matrices; iv) Synchrotron Light for nano-agri-environmental research; v) Biological and environmental applications of nanoparticles; vi) Nanofertilizers and Nanoagrochemicals; vii) Ecotoxicology, geochemistry and nanobiointerfaces; viii) Nanosafety and Nanoinformatics; ix) International harmonization and regulatory issues; x) Environmental implications of nanotechnology.

A highly favourable multidisciplinary environment for exchanging experiences and integrating knowledge toward nanotechnology innovation with safety, responsibility, and sustainability considering an international globalized scenario.

Aiming at young talents committed to academic excellence, The school will present FAPESP’s research and innovation ecosystem, and opportunities for carrying out PhD and post-doctoral studies in the State of São Paulo.
