Free Online Event: Nanoscience Research Highlights - Asia (East)

Join us on Thursday 20th January, 2011 at 0.745 (GMT) for a free webinar on 'Nanotechnology Research Highlights Asia (East)'. Organised by The Chinese Society for Micro and Nano Technology (CSMNT), this online workshop will showcase the latest developments in the region and will offer a unique platform for nanoscientists and researchers to meet and listen to presentations given by our expert speakers from China, Malaysia and Thailand. Discussion sessions will provide opportunities for participants to learn more about each other's expertise, infrastructure and research interests, facilitating networking and collaboration.

The invited expert speakers are:

* Prof. Wang Zhuo, National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, China.
* Prof. Dr Halimaton Hamdan, Professor of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Under Secretary National Nanotechnology Directorate
* Prof. Sirirurg Songsivilai, Executive Director of National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) Thailand

The prospective audience consists of nanoscientists and stakeholders from Europe and International Cooperation Partner Countries to the EU (emerging economies and developing countries) who are interested in developments in the Asia (East) region. Participation is free for registered users of the ICPC-NanoNet website

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
