EuroNanoForum 2017, Malta, 21st-23rd June
The conference will focus on how nano and materials technologies can strengthen competitiveness across all European industries.
The discussion will also extend to framework conditions such as education, standards, regulations, IPR and safety issues, as well as entrepreneurship and industrial policy. The programme will include sessions on finance and funding through European and National programmes, in particular Horizon 2020, smart specialisation and public-private partnership initiatives.
The EuroNanoForum biannual conference series has grown since 2003 into the most significant European forum offering opportunities for discussions among scientists, industrialists and policy makers, focusing on the use of research results in the various nanotechnology fields and associated industrial sectors.
It is organised in close cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and the Member State holding the Presidency of the European Union in the respective year.
Nanotechnology, being the main topic of the EuroNanoForum, is one of the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) of the Horizon2020’s (H2020) Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies pillar, offering potential for major breakthroughs in a wide range of materials, technologies and applications. It has a strong role in supporting European competitiveness and Industrial Leadership, but also presents opportunities for the Societal Challenges of health, energy and the environment.
