NanotechItaly 2011 - International Conference
Venezia-Mestre, 23-25 novembre 2011, Hotel NH Laguna Palace
NanotechItaly 2011, is an International Conference jointly organised by AIRI/Nanotec IT, Veneto Nanotech, the National Research Council (CNR) and the Italian Institute of Technology, in collaboration with Federchimica and Politecnico of Torino (Latemar Research Center).
Aim of the event is to highlight, with the contribution of the most important Italian players in the field and renowned experts from abroad, situation and perspectives of nanotechnology. Comforted by the success of the past editions (Nanotec2008.it, Nanotec2009.it, NanotechItaly 2010), the 2011 Conference will maintain its focus on application, with extended goals and contents.
The Conference will offer
A comprehensive picture of nanotechnology activities, perspectives and needs in Italy
The latest developments and trends at world level of nanotech across key industrial sectors
Innovation and business practices to bring nanotechnologies to the market place
Governance and policy actions to promote nanotech development
Matchmaking and networking opportunities
