Event Description

The need for clean water is imperative for human development, and increasingly we are turning to solutions offered by nanoscience and nanotechnology. Several of these approaches are currently under investigation, and a number are already in use.

This online workshop on Nanotechnology for Clean Water will showcase the latest developments in this field and will enable nanoscientists investigating this area to meet and find out about each others’ research expertise and applications. Join us on 13th December at 11.00 GMT.

The invited speakers include Prof T. Pradeep, Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India; Prof. Ligy Philip, Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India and Prof. E. Shaji, Department of Geology, University of Kerala, India.

Topics to be discusses are: ‘Nanomaterials for clean and affordable water’, ‘Photocatalysis for clean water’ and ‘Groundwater contamination in India: A case study on fluoride problem of Kerala state’ and there will be opportunity for discussion after each session.

Participation is free and you can sign up free of charge at

About ICPC-Nanonet:

The ICPC-NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The 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.

gud one.......
i trhink it will be exciting

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
