The three day event will address themes that are challenging modern society to promote a responsible innovation:
New materials, Processes and Manufacturing
Health and life sciences - Nanomedicine
Smart transportation (Storage, batteries, photovoltaic systems, micro energy generation, energy saving )
Safe living (Safe buildings)
ICT & Nanoelectronics
Responsible development - Nano-toxicology (Regulation, risk assessment (EHS), risk management (workers and consumers safety), social and ethical issues, standards )
During the Conference it will also be possible to access:
- Area Poster: More than 120 Italian and International researchers will display the results of their projects in an Area dedicated to the “Posters”.
- Exhibition Area: Also this year NanotechItaly 2011 will offer an area where Companies will have the unique opportunity to present their own products and services, increasing the business visibility, getting into contact with Institutions and National and International Research Centres, so to encourage new opportunities, ideas or projects and strengthen the networking contacts.
In the framework of the Conference, a special Networking Event will be organized, with the support of APRE, Agency for the Promotion of European Research.
The Networking Event will offer the possibility to businessmen, entrepreneurs, researchers and innovators to actively establish contacts during face-to-face meetings.
The aim of the pre-arranged bilateral meetings is to facilitate business development, accelerate innovation andinitiate research projects. The participation is free of charge for the NanotechItaly 2011 Conference participants.
