Summer School on Advanced Nanomaterials for Sustainability: energy, environment and health

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to participate in the Summer School on Advanced nanomaterials for sustainability: energy, environment and health (SCANS2011), which will be held in Guimarães, Portugal, during 12-14 September 2011.

The course is addressed to Ph. D students, researchers and industrial engineers involved in Advanced Surface Engineering Technologies. It will be a great opportunity to meet and contact with hot topics on new technologies, materials and surface functionalities to ensure a long lasting sustainable society.

The training course programme includes 24 hours of lectures on the three consecutive days. The topics to be addressed are:

✓Biosensors, Biomaterials

✓Self Cleaning Materials

✓Food Packaging Materials

✓Solar energy

✓Plasma-based processing

✓Electron Microscopy

You can find the detailed program, with abstracts in our website:


DEADLINE for earlier Registration SCANS 2011 in Portugal: July 31, 2011

We are looking forward to your participation to SCANS 2011 and to welcoming you in Guimarães in September 2011.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Sandra Carvalho

(Chairman of SCANS2011)

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
