Nanotechnology innovation: from research to commercialisation.
EuroNanoForum 2013 focuses on the impact nanotechnology is having on solving societal problems in environment, energy and health, and showcases innovation as a driver of economic growth.
The event presents new technologies arising from nanoscience and their applications and discusses potential new end products. Commercialisation and co-operative alliances and schemes that accelerate their deployment are addressed, also considering the other key enabling technologies of advanced materials, nanoelectronics and manufacturing.
The conference programme has four thematic tracks: environment, life sciences, co-operation and commercialisation, industrial applications and nano-engineering. High-profile speakers from industry, government and research will discuss the economic and technological impact of nanotechnologies on European growth.
