Welcome / Background

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.

Key topics of the conference include Nano for information and communication technologies, life sciences, optics, energy and materials for a sustainable development. The two-day program will feature plenary talks, topical sessions, discussion platforms, poster sessions and ample opportunities for in-depth and informal networking.

Sessions of this year’s conference will include:

  • Sensing
  • Nano-Fabrication & Nano-Devices
  • Biointerfaces and Bio inspired Materials
  • Advanced Analytics
  • Nano-Optics
  • Quantum systems
  • Metrology
