The heat is on for an online social networking community for nanoscientists not only from India. The Internet Nanoscience Community, TINC, was created by Hungarian chemistry student Andras Paszternak in 2007. It now provides a rich menu of communication tools for the international community of scientists working in the growing field of nanoscience and nanotechnology and recently passed the 4700 members mark.
The virtual nano community is fully equipped with all the functions one expects from a modern online networking site: personal chat, a scientific forum, more than 90 thematic groups, including microscopy, nanomedicine, and even a discussion forum on safety and toxicity. TINC is also a media partner for more than 25 nano conferences on different topics in 2011 and 2012.
"The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet," says Paszternak. "I started off editing the existing nano website at my institution in Hungary but realized the site could be so much bigger, spreading like a tree and connecting nano scientists across the globe," he adds. "Registering the web address www.Nanopaprika.eu
for TINC was my little joke adding Hungary's favourite spice to the nano community.
The Internet Nanoscience Community has pulled together a community with more than 4700 members, researchers, students, industrial partners from Europe, India, the USA, and 80 other countries. TINC 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!" adds Paszternak.
