Short description: The workshop addressed 2 main topics 'Water treatment and Purification' and 'Air, Water and Soil Decontamination' through 15 presentations. The discussions focussed on the following issues: 1) Which are the most effective nanotechnologies for prevention or cleanup of pollution? 2) How dependable and close to market are remediation techniques based on nanotechnologies? 3) What additional research is needed to exploit the full potential of nanotechnology for remediation? 4) Which environmental nanotechnologies are the most promising and should be further explored? 5) What are the potential risks of using nanotechnologies in remediation applications? 6) Is there a need for targeted funding for infrastructure to support nanotechnologies for environmental remediation? 7) What opportunities are there for setting up EU collaborative projects on environmental nanotechnologies?
