Congratulations to all of the winners! The judges of the prize thought the quality of the presentations were really high and, from the Environmental Science: Nano team, we would like to thank all the students that attended or presented at the meeting.

To mark this special occasion, Environmental Science: Nano is proud to announce an exciting web collection that will gather together review articles, original research papers and communications covering topics discussed at the conference.

We welcome submissions from key research areas including but not limited to:

– Physical and chemical properties of nanoparticles as related to the environment and health
– Ageing and effects of fate and behaviour
– Toxicology and ecotoxicology
– Social and regulatory sciences
– Innovation and applications of nanotechnology to environmental and health issues
