Forschungsgemeinschaft Funk e.V.

Workshop on Open Questions in the Research on the Effects of EMF

Title: 19. FGF Workshop (in Cooperation with the Ministry for Environment Baden/Württemberg)
Open Questions in the Research on Biological and Health Effects of Low-Intensity RF-EMF
Year: 17. - 19. November 2008 in Stuttgart/Germany
Topic: The workshop aims to pick up open questions on health effects of radiofrequency fields. Key issues are the research on children, on possible long-term effects with the example of animal experiments as well as on mechanisms of cellular and subcellular level.
Further Information:: As the number of paricipants is limited please register as soon as possible at
Deadline for registration is Tuesday, September 30th, 2008.
