Environmental Monitoring and Remediation First Severo Ochoa Workshop on Environment

The workshop on Environmental Monitoring and Remediation brought 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 also covered the life-cycle of nanomaterials as potential pollutants and their impact on the ecosystem. This Action was held within the framework of the framework of the 2018-2021 Excelencia Severo Ochoa Programme.

16-17 December 2021
Barcelona (Spain)

Where: Casa Convalescència and Zoom

This workshop allowed the opportunity to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns in the field, the practical challenges encountered, and the solutions adopted. Furthermore, the industrial vision was of great value to bring focus to the academic research lines.
