"Spicy world of NanoScience"
The ICPC Nanonet Project invites you to participate in free online events in September
1. Nanotechnology for a Knowledge Society in Emerging Economies and Developing Countries
Join the online debate on contributions that nanotechnology can make to a knowledge society in developing countries and emerging economies from your own office with experts on Nanotechnology and Society in the Netherlands, Brazil, South Africa and India. The webinars offer a platform for information exchange on good practices and proposals for international cooperation among governments of the Netherlands, the EU and International Cooperation Partner Countries of the EU (developing countries and emerging economies).
2 September 2010 (focus on Latin America and Africa)
13.00-15.00 GMT (15.00-17.00 Continental European Summer Time)
7 September 2010 (focus on Asia and Europe)
