1) Thursday September 23rd 2010: 15:00 BST - "Nanotechnology and REACH Readiness"



Programme


2:45 – 3:00 Set-up, sound check, system check and download of materials


3:00 Webinar Start



The webinar will:


  • give an insight into the current policies related to the registration of dossiers for nanomaterials;
  • discuss references, guidance documents, and nanomaterial characterization;
  • provide an opportunity for the discussion of REACH impacting the supply chain and international trade.


This webinar is free for both members and non-members.



Register now for this practical guide to becoming REACH Ready.



What is REACH?


REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use and deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances.



For further information about any of the webinars or to express an interest in attending please contact gemma.mcculloch@nano.org.uk


2) NanoMicroClub Networking Event: "Energy Generation and Supply"


6th October 2010, University of Surrey, UK


"Energy Generation and Supply"



Organised by: The Institute of Nanotechnology and the University of Surrey Nanotechnology and Photonics Platform



The energy market encompasses a vast range of economic activity, from the extraction of fossil fuels, to the generation of energy, its distribution, and consumption.



The event will discuss:


  • The potential impact of Nanotechnology at all stages of the energy value chain
  • The development of advanced materials for improved oil drilling, innovations in thin film solar technologies, and new batteries that have increased power densities and
    stability
  • The development of new energy technologies driven by policies that reduce CO2 generation


Our NanoMicroClub meeting on the 6th of October will highlight nanotechnology applications for Energy Generation and Supply.



Current confirmed Speakers include:


  • Prof Ravi Silva, Director of the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) and the Nano-Electronics Centre (NEC) at University
    of Surrey


  • Tiju Joseph, Knowledge Exchange Platform Director, Nanotechnology and Photonics, Surrey University


  • Dr Mark Graves, Managing Director - 1851 Technology Group


  • "Nanoparticle anti-reflection films - applications to solar cells"
    Gareth Wakefield, Technical Director - Oxford Energy
    Technologies


  • "Nanoporous Materials - a major advance for Supercapacitors"
    Bill Campbell, Chief Executive Officer - Nanotecture Ltd


  • Mike Attfield, Business Director - Energenics Europe Ltd (TBC)


  • "Future and Emerging Opportunities in Energy"
    Dr Jeff Hardy, Future and Emerging Opportunities Manager, Energy Generation and Supply KTN

I want tp register for for the first seminar and I already have sent a note.
I am sure both are very timely and important.

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
