Environmental Monitoring and Remediation First Severo Ochoa Workshop on Environment

The workshop on Environmental Monitoring and Remediation aims at bringing together leading academic scientists, researchers, scholars and industry representatives to exchange and share their experiences and results on all the aspects involved in pollutant detection, monitoring, scavenging and degradation. The workshop topics will also cover the life-cycle of nanomaterials as potential pollutants and their impact on the ecosystem. This Action is held within the framework of the 2018-2021 Excelencia Severo Ochoa Programme.

16-17 December 2021
