DuPont And Environmental Defense Fund Invite You To Attend An Interactive Workshop On Nano Risk Management:

Nano Risk Management Training Workshop

Date: 4/2/08
Location: San Francisco, CA

DuPont and Environmental Defense Fund invite you to attend an interactive workshop on nano risk management.

These workshops will give participants the tools they need to:
· Understand (and explain to others) why nano-specific risk management is necessary;
· Assemble and leverage the internal and external resources to implement nano-specific risk management; and
· Begin implementing nano-specific risk management in an efficient and effective manner.

The workshops will be led by Scott Walsh, of Environmental Defense Fund, and Terry Medley and Keith Swain, of DuPont, authors of the Nano Risk Framework, a comprehensive, flexible and practical tool to evaluate, manage and communicate the potential risks of nanomaterials. The workshop will include:
· Interactive discussions of how to implement nano-specific risk management;
· Case studies of nano-specific risk management in use by companies and governments; and
· Sources of additional help for companies adopting these approaches.

Register for Wednesday, April 2nd at the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (San Francisco, CA) at or by contacting Lesley Fore at

Register for Tuesday, April 8th at the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (Boston, MA) at
