International Summer School on Nanotechnology

Europe’s unique International Summer Schools on Nanotechnology (ISSON12) is taking place once again as part of the multi-faceted science event on NANOTEXNOLOGY 2012 at the I. Vellidis Congress Centre at the Helexpo – Thessaloniki International Fair facilities in Thessaloniki from 30 June-7 July 2012.

This year’s 6th International Summer School on Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies: ... is divided into three complementary parts: I. Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, II. Organic Electronics (supported by the Network of Excellence “FlexNet”) and III. Nanomedicine.

“This is a unique educational event in all of Europe since it will teach the latest developments in all fields of nanotechnology,” explains the Chairman of the Nanotexnology 2012 Organising Committee, Prof. Stergios Logothetidis.

“The attendants after the lectures and the exams will receive a certification for their attendance with the perspective to be used at their university to get ECTS credits”, explained the head of the Nanomedicine Summer School, Dr. Varvara Karagkiozaki.

The lectures are addressed to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers, and all those that are interested in Nanotechnology.

“Every year we make sure that we have lecturers who are in the front line of nanoscience and research from around the world. We keep an eye on state of the art developments and that is why our teaching content is constantly being updated”, explained Dr. Karagkiozaki.

Last year there were hundreds of attendees from 35 countries, from literally all over the world, which demonstrates that the International Summer School in Nanotechnology is at the cutting edge of global developments.

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
