This posting is intended as an imperative "Heads-up!" to the decision-making and influence-forming numbnuts still living in the land of denial. Apologies in advance to the prim, the proper, the politically correct, and the thin-skinned. This windsock warning is not for you. -LLP

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
