The ICPC Nanonet project (EU funded under FP7) offers you a free open access Nano Archive of nearly 7,000 items including many full texts at http://www.nanoarchive.org. Please contact me if you would like to archive your research and I will create an editor's account for you. I am also interested in communicating with researchers in sub-Saharan Africa for an annual region report. Join the international network at http://www.icpc-nanonet.org. The website also contains information for parties interested in FP7 collaboration.

The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (formerly Third World Academy of Sciences)
« is an autonomous international organization, based in Trieste, Italy, that promotes scientific excellence for sustainable development in the South. Its principal aim is to promote scientific capacity… It was founded in 1983 by a distinguished group of scientists from the South under the leadership of the late Nobel laureate Abdus Salam of Pakistan. It was officially launched by the secretary-general of the United Nations in 1985… The Academy's strength resides in the quality and diversity of its membership – internationally renowned scientists elected by their peers. TWAS represents the best of science in developing countries… »

« CariScience is a network of R&D and postgraduate programmes in the basic sciences in the member countries. Funded and advised by UNESCO, it is a sister organisation of the Caribbean Academy of Sciences. CariScience's next Annual Conference will meet in Suriname (Dutch Guyana) in October 2009.
It was officially launched at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies in Jamaica on June 1, 1999 by the then Vice-Chancellor, The Honorable Rex Nettleford. It is an organization administered by researchers for researchers and involves scientists in Barbados, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Membership is open to any established Research Centre or Unit in these countries. To date, with very limited funding CARISCIENCE has supported over 17 Workshops, Conferences/ Symposia, 28 academic visits and 7 Research and Development Projects. It has recently introduced a Caribbean Young Scientist Fellowship Programme, which enables Ph.D students to spend 3-6 months at centers of excellence in Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, India and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. CARISICENCE works closely with a number of organizations including UNESCO, OAS, TWAS, ICPT and academies of sciences. »

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
