EuroNanoForum 2011 to take place in Budapest on May 30 – June 1 2011

Brussels, Helsinki, Budapest, 1st December 2010

EuroNanoForum is a biannual event organised within the framework of the Presidency of the European
Union. EuroNanoForum 2011 will be the fifth event in this series, and will take place under the Hungarian
Presidency at the Budapest Congress and World Trade Center from 30th May to 1st June 2011.
EuroNanoForum 2011 has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme
(FP7/2007-2013) and the National Office for Research and Technology in Hungary.

EuroNanoForum 2011 reveals how nanotechnology can contribute to solving the grand challenges of our
time. The event covers research breakthroughs, industrial innovations and the societal impact of

For the first time, EuroNanoForum is joining forces with Nanotech Europe, a leading European
nanotechnology event produced by Spinverse, to provide a single meeting point for the whole
nanotechnology community.
The three-day event includes a full conference program, an extensive exhibition and effective
matchmaking, ensuring attendees will be able to network with leading industrial, research and political
decision makers.
Herbert von Bose, Director of the Industrial Technologies Programme, at the European Commission points
to the fact that “Europe needs to take advantage of the enormous potential that new nanotechnologies
hold in order to ensure our competitiveness and continued growth. It is essential that the different
nanotechnology players, from scientists to consumers, actively collaborate and develop new processes and
products in a responsible manner.
EuroNanoForum plays a major role in facilitating such collaboration. Europe need not only excellent science
but has to take full advantage of its results. ENF2011 is further very timely placed to discuss the vision for
the future, including the Innovation Union initiative.”
Dr. István Vadász, Vice President of Hungary’s National Office for Research and Technology (NKTH) states
that “Hungary has a long tradition of excellence in science. Our locally grown nanotechnology SMEs are
building international recognition in their fields of expertise, while our researchers explore further
promising avenues. Bringing together key scientific and industrial actors is as relevant as ever for Europe.
EuroNanoForum 2011 aims to inspire collaborations to meet Europe’s grand challenges and lead the
nanotechnology era.”
Pekka Koponen, CEO of Spinverse, adds that “We originally established Nanotech Europe to bring research
and industry together in order to stimulate the commercial development of nanotechnology. The
combination of EuroNanoForum and Nanotech Europe comes as an opportune time as we see the
industrial relevance of nanotechnology on target to increase substantially over the coming years.”

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
