NanoAfrica is a new TINC group for all people interested in the developments and applications of nanotechnology in Africa. I’d like to invite you to join at http://www.nanopaprika.eu/group/nanoafrica and to post a description of your institution as well as your research focus and application areas. This will help inform an annual report on the region to be published in June at www.icpc-nanonet.org and increase the impact of your research as well as extend its reach.
The ICPC Nanonet project (EU funded under FP7) is aimed at networking nanoscientists and researchers across the globe to help bridge the nano divide and avoid a knowledge apartheid.
It offers 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.
You can join the international network at http://www.icpc-nanonet.org. Registration is free. The website also contains information for parties interested in FP7 collaboration, details of free webinars taking place (three in September), information about researchers and organisations and much more.
I am also interested in communicating with researchers in sub-Saharan Africa for the annual region report. If you would like your institution's research showcased in the report, please get in touch
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
