About the TINC:
The heat is on for an online social networking community for nanoscientists. The Internet Nanoscience Community, TINC, was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student. 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 3200 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 80 thematic groups, including microscopy, nanomedicine, and even a discussion forum on safety and toxicity. TINC is also a media partner for more than 50 nano conferences on ifferent topics in 2009 and 2010.
The Internet Nanoscience Community has pulled together a community with more than 3200 members, researchers, students, industrial partners from Europe, India, the USA, and 50 other countries. TINC is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
