The Swiss NanoConvention 2016 was organised by the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and took place in Basel from 30 June – 1 July, 2016. It was part of the Nano-Week in Basel, opened by the Clinam Conference.
The CTI Micro-Nano Event was held parallel to the SNC 2016 on June 30th.
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 2016 will be organized together with the CTI-Micro/Nano event 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 is also planned.
