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. 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.

Please join us at the next edition at the Patinoires du Littoral, lakeside Neuchâtel from June 15 & 16, 2023 as an in-person meeting. 

Key topics of the conference include:

  • Nano-optics
  • Nano-imaging
  • Quantum technology
  • Nanotechnology for energy
  • Biosensors
  • Micro & nanofluidics
  • And more…

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 an exhibition are also planned. Awards will be given for best poster and best nano image. There will a start-up competition as well as the bestowment of the 2023 Swiss MNT Network PhD Awards.

We are looking forward to seeing you in June in Neuchâtel.
