The ETH Conference on Combustion-Generated Nanoparticles in 2021 is organized as an online conference under the auspice of the Swiss Chemical Society. It serves as an interdisciplinary platform for expert discussions on all aspects of nanoparticles, freshly emitted from various sources, aged in ambient air, technical mitigation aspects, impact of particles on health, environment and climate and particle legislation. The conference brings together representatives from research, industry and legislation.


The program overview is now available on the official event-website.

You can register at any time to join the conference.
No participation fee will be charged. This is possible only thanks to the generous financial support of our sponsors.
