The 2017 EMU (European Mineralogical Union) school

The 2017 EMU (European Mineralogical Union) school on „Mineral fibres: crystal chemistry, chemical-physical properties, biological interaction and toxicity” will be held in Modena (Italy) on June 19-23, 2017. The related EMU Notes Volume will be also released during the school.

The school addresses advanced graduate and PhD students as well as young and experienced researchers with an interest in mineral fibres.
The school will cover all the multidisciplinary aspects related to the
study of natural fibres and is thus aimed at students with a background in
Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Material Science, Medicine, Physics who strive
for working in the field of mineral fibre and asbestos and want to acquire
both a strong background in this specific area of environmental protection
and a multidisciplinary open vision of the asbestos related problems.
