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 different 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.

For detailed information and REGISTRATION (ON-LINE) go to the web site EMU2017.unimore.it

Travel grants will be issued by EMU for young scientists participating at the school (see the web site for the details).
