December 13th to 15th 2021 Synchrotron SOLEIL
Deadline for registration: November 24th, 2021

The ITN PANORAMA (H2020 Innovative Training Network EuroPean trAining NetwOrk on Rare eArth elements environMental trAnsfer: from rock to human) is organising a workshop on "colloids and nanoparticles: vectors of rare earth elements into the environment" from Monday the 13th to Wednesday the 15th of December 2021 at the SOLEIL synchrotron (Saint Aubin).

From smartphones to oil refining, and include hybrid vehicles and green energy production, rare earth elements (REE) are now an integral part of our way of life. Access to these resources, mainly extracted in China, is a strategic issue for Europe. But they are also a cause for concern in terms of their toxicity as waste. Several academic and industrial research projects have already been implemented to identify potential European sources of REE and to develop more environmentally friendly extraction processes. However, the environmental risks associated with the use of REE have not yet been fully explored.

The PANORAMA project aims to consider the entire environmental behaviour of REE. It brings together (geo)chemists, (hydro)geologists and (eco)toxicologists in a consortium of academic (14) and non-academic (4) partners, allowing 15 PhD students to develop a range of research and cross-cutting skills.
This workshop is a follow-up to the workshop "REE as emerging contaminants: properties, uses, and dissemination" organised online in April 2021 by the Jacob University of Bremen (Germany).
This second workshop will aim to provide knowledge on the structural arrangement and physico-chemical properties of nanoparticles and colloids, vehicles of REE in the environment, and on the analytical techniques to access this knowledge. It will also address the issue of REE recycling and the transfer of knowledge and skills from innovative academic research to start-up creation.
