Quite; and also FANTASTICALLY FUN! I am working on increasing my time scores (suffer too many penalties). Also allows me to research the underlying science and also to move closer to understanding the pedagogical aims, intentions, and methodologies of the developers and educators.

That's really interesting!!!

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
