Collaborations widen through ICPCNanoNet - ICPCNanoNet Press Release

ICPCNanoNet Online Workshops 2009
ICPCNanoNet held the first Online Members Workshops on July 8th. The next planned workshops will focus
on Nanotechnology for Water, and the new EC Code of Conduct. Registered members will be notified of dates
and times. If you would like to organize an online workshop, you are invited to contact the project partner
responsible for your region (see

Launch of New Discussion and Networking Forum
Members registered on the ICPC NanoNet website ( now have a new tool for developing
collaborations. A forum has been launched to facilitate discussions between its members on various
N&N-related topics.

First Annual Workshop 2009 - DVDs now available DVDs of the first annual ICPCNanoNet project workshop are now available to registered members. The first
100 DVDs will be given out free. This first workshop, held in Prague, focused on the results of the project´s
first year, and profiled specific nano activities in the EU and a number of ICPCs.

Second Annual Workshop – Beijing 2010

Plans are underway for the second annual workshop, due to take place from 14-15th June in Beijing. The
workshop will showcase East Asian N&N from the perspective of building collaborations between this region
and the EU. A number of speakers from other ICPC regions will also be presenting news of novel developments
and current themes.

ICPCNanoNet Region Reports in Production
Work has commenced on the second set of annual reports from the eight ICPC regions. These reports will
provide an update of N&N activities during the past year. They will also provide an in depth focus on technical
themes and topics of interest for collaboration contributions of regional N&N news are particularly welcome
and you are invited to contact the project partner to submit these.

Publications Archive and Databases Expanding Rapidly

The ICPC NanoNet publications archive now holds almost 5,000 items. Scientists worldwide can be part of
this initiative by contributing their research to, raising their profile in the international
community. Meanwhile, the ICPC databases of N&N organisations and researchers are growing at an ever
increasing rate. N&N Scientists and researchers can register themselves on the project website; organisations
should contact their region’s partner for registration.

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
