Online workshop : Bridging the Nano Divide
The ICPC NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This online workshop on Bridging the Nano Divide will enable researchers from different disciplines interested in socio-economic and innovation aspects of nanotechnology to meet and find out about each other’s expertise, infrastructure and research interests.
Date: 20 October 2010, 12.45-15.15 GMT. (13.45-16.15 BST, 14.45-17.15 CET)
Participation is free for registered users of the ICPC-NanoNet website (sign up free of charge).

The ICPC-Nanonet project is funded by the European Union under FP7 for four years, from June 2008. It brings together partners from the EU, China, India, Russia and Africa and aims to provide wider access to published nanoscience research and opportunities for collaboration between scientists in the EU and International Cooperation Partner Countries.
