Dear participant, 

Which chemical processes and products can and should be safer? And how could we tackle this?

Are you interested in these questions and their answers, then take part in the digital interactive inspiration session 'Safety in (process) chemistry' on Friday morning, October 29th  and think along about possible research topics!

This inspiration session 'Safety in (process) chemistry' is organized by TI-COAST, Safety Delta Nederland and ChemistryNL for their associates on October 29th  from 09.30 - 11.00. In this session, different aspects and perspectives will be addressed and there will be room for discussion. The recently opened call for proposals 'Safe-by-Design' will also be explained by NWO. This thematic program of the Dutch National Research Agenda (NWA) focuses on the development and implementation of a practical Safe-by-Design approach for the design of chemical substances, materials, products and processes.
