Nanotechnology in Food and Agriculture

20th January 2011: 14.00 - 15.00 GMT

Nanotechnology in Food and Agriculture Webinar

The benefits of applying nanotechnology can be clearly seen in a field like medicine, where achieving a balance between benefits and risks has always been part of any technological advance. But what of food, where consumers are very sensitive of its content, and agriculture, which has been blighted in the past by controversies such as the debate on GMOs?

Join this webinar and gain an overview of some of the latest applications of nanotechnology in food and agriculture and learn what implications nanotechnology may have for risk management, governance and regulation in the field of food and agriculture.

3rd February 2011, 18.00 GMT: Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London, UK

Free Public Evening Lecture

Professor Ashok Vaseashta, Director, Institute for Advanced Sciences Convergence, Norwich University Applied Research Institutes

Albert Franks Memorial Lecture 2011

With more sophisticated and comprehensive databases, and more powerful modeling tools; understanding and predicting how technological advances in different disciplines can combine to offer new approaches and solutions to existing problems has become a reality. The process of Advanced Sciences Convergence, presented in this public lecture, focuses on these methodologies and describes how visionary, yet achievable, outcomes may be realized, and analyzes the necessary high-yield and high-risk research to solve Grand Challenges in environment, defence, and security.

Advanced Technologies for an Ageing Population

23rd - 24th March 2011: The Teacher Building, Glasgow, UK

Advanced Technologies for an Ageing Population

How do we address the societal and economic challenge of increasing life expectancies and incidences of age-related and lifestyle disease? This conference presents the latest research, market products, and strategies to deliver solutions to the issues of caring for the elderly. Featuring leading academic research, innovative SMEs, opinion leaders from government and non-governmental organizations, it is the conference to attend to learn how advanced technologies are providing new solutions for treatment and assisted living.

Nanomedicine: what is it and how can it help the patient?

22nd March 2011: The Teacher Building, Glasgow, UK

This one-day course immediately precedes the major Institute of Nanotechnology Conference Advanced Technologies for an Ageing Population and is intended to provide an overview of how nano and other advanced technologies are beginning to revolutionise medical products and practice.

hi h r u sear : please we need training course in nano technology in medical we want in Europe country because near from my country also i hope to me vitiation from their any way in medical lecture or work shop or courses

Latest Activity

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
