All members of the Leibniz Research Alliance share ideas with scientists around the world, for example in national or international collaborations or at scientific meetings.
As experts in the fields of nanosafety and toxicology, they assume an advisory function for several public institutions and committees in Germany, which include: the German Research Council (DFG, MAK-committee), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the Northrhine-Westphalian Ministry for Innovation, Science and Research (MIWF NRW).
As specialists, the partners in the Research Alliance Nanosafety are in dialogue with members of the Bundestag and of the Northrhine-Westphalian State Parliament, in the context of events such as “Science meets Parliament” or the Parliamentary Evening of the Leibniz Association.
Communication with citizens and school students is particularly important to the partners in the research alliance. The member institutes are, therefore, committed to keeping youngsters informed about the alliance’s work, for example by organising an open house or Girl’s Day, which is held regularly across the country. Groups of school students have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the diverse fields of natural science, including nanosafety, on guided tours and in presentations.
Workshops and conferences can be found under Events.
