Nanosafety Regional Workshop for the Central and Eastern European Region, Poland

UNITAR’s Chemicals and Waste Management Programme in partnership with OECD, and funded by the Government of Switzerland, organised a series of regional workshops in 2018. These workshops were aimed towards professionals working nationally or at the regional level in the nano field or broader chemicals management. Perspectives and experiences from governments, regional experts, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations were included.
