Nanochallenge & Polymerchallenge 2011

Nanochallenge & Polymerchallenge 2011 is an international business plan competition organized by Veneto Nanotech, aiming at attracting the best nanotechnology innovations and business ideas. It offers financial and strategic support to scientists, researchers  and entrepreneurs ready to start a real company in the north east of Italy (nanotechnology category) or in the Campania Region (Polymer based materials category).
The new entrepreneurs have access to facilities, labs, instruments and financial network to develop their technologies and products. This helps them speed the development phase and enter the market.
The competition offers a total amount of 600.000 euro: 300.000 euro for startups participating in the nanotechnology category and 300.000 euro for the polymer-based materials category.
Anybody anywhere with an innovative and high-growth nanotechnology or polymer-based materials business idea can participate and try to win one of the Prizes. The money must be used to start a company in the territory where the two clusters are located.

Prizes of the two categories are not cumulative: teams must compete either for the nanotechnology or the polymer-based materials category.

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
