Shaping European Nanotechnology - The Role of ObservatoryNANO

Thursday 19th March, 2009
Berr Conference Centre, London, UK

Attend the UK dissemination event for the ObservatoryNANO in London on the 19th March 2009 and learn about new nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N) developments in different industrial sectors and what socio-economic impacts these are having on the global market.
European decision-makers in government, industry, and finance lack objective information for their decisions when considering a rapidly changing field of technology such as N&N. The ObservatoryNANO project aims to address this through extensive engagement with the global expert community to supplement its review of scientific literature, patents, and reports from different organizations and projects.
Developments in ten broad technology sectors are being mapped and analyzed:
aerospace, automotive and transport; agrifood; chemistry and materials; construction; energy; environment; health, medicine and nanobio; ICT; security; and textiles.
This event provides an overview of the work performed within the first year of the project and the opportunity for participants to meet project partners and get a better insight into how nanotechnology is evolving, not just in terms of scientific, technological and socio-economic opportunities, but also the ethical and societal aspects, and the potential environment, health and safety issues.

It also provides a platform for individuals to become involved in future engagement processes and have their opinions included in reports and analyses presented to EU policy makers.

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
