June 15-16th 2010

Conference Center of Gijón – Asturias (SPAIN)

The European Commission, the Spanish Presidency of the European Union, the Government of Principality of Asturias, the NANOfutures association and PRODINTEC are pleased to announce the Official Launching of the European Initiative “NANOfutures”: European Technology Integration and Innovation Platform (ETIP) in Nanotechnology. This event will be held in Gijón (Asturias) on the 15-16th June 2010. This initiative has been included as an Official Event under the Spanish Presidency of the European Union.

Key industrial companies from several sectors such as the BASF Group (Chemical Sector), BP Solar (Renewable Energy), FIAT Research Centre
(Automotive), Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. (Advanced Nanomaterials),
ZELTIA Group (Pharma/Nanomedicine), ACCIONA Infraestructuras, S.A.
(Construction) and Bayer MaterialScience (Chemical Sector) have also
confirmed their participation as speakers.

Lecture from Academia will be given by Prof. Emilio Méndez, Director of
the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (Brookhaven National
Laboratory, USA) and Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and
Scientific Research.

Successful spin-offs and investors in nanotechnology will also
contribute different perspectives as regards setting-up and promoting
technology-based companies.

Participants will have a unique opportunity to extend their knowledge
on nanotechnologies, as well as get in contact with top-level European
industrialists and world-class researchers in order to learn about
nanotechnology, exchange information, find new applications for
nanotechnology, open up new business opportunities and raise their
awareness regarding on-going R&D activities in the field.

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
