May 23-24, 2013, Messe Basel
The Swiss NanoConvention brings together Swiss and international leaders from science and industry in the field of «nano», key figures in innovation and technology, entrepreneurs, investors, administrators and politicians. The Swiss NanoConvention is a platform for connecting people, networking, debating and exchanging ideas – or even generating new ones. Key players are able to gather the best available information on the potential, but also on the risks of one of the key emerging technologies of the 21st century, and its opportunities for innovative technologies, products and services.
In short: The Swiss NanoConvention is the prime showcase for nanotechnology in Switzerland, jointly organized by the «who-is-who» in the Swiss nano scene. It is the venue for meeting the great minds in nanoscience and -technology.
The Swiss Nanoconvention 2013 will be organized together with the NCCR on Nanoscale Science funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Whereas the NCCR has its focus on medium to long term science, the conference will also integrate the CTI-Micro/Nanoevent which focusses on short to medium term applied science. Key topics of the conference include Nano for ICT, the life sciences, optics, energy and materials for a sustainable development. The two-day program will feature plenary talks, topical sessions, discussion platforms and ample opportunities for in-depth and informal networking. A poster session and a topical session on EU funding is also planned.
