Euro Nano Forum 2007
Nanotechweb flies to Düsseldorf on Monday to bring you news from the 2007 edition of EuroNanoForum - Europe’s largest specialist nanotechnology event. Held for the first time in Germany, the show builds on previous European Commission supported conferences in the UK (Edinburgh, 2005) and Italy (Triest, 2003).
“Chemistry, electronics, healthcare, surface sciences, material sciences and textiles are some of the big topics this time around,” Michael H. Wappelhorst of the European Commission’s press office told nanotechweb.org. “The 2005 event was focused on nanomedicine, whereas this year’s conference is much more open.”
According to Wappelhorst, there has been a noticable increase in the number of emerging applications over the past two years. “Europe is especially strong on nanomaterials, nanomedicine and sustainable development,” He added. “We want EuroNanoFourm to target the opportunities, challenges and bottlenecks.”
