EuroNanoForum 2011, Budapest
EuroNanoForum 2011 takes place in Budapest from 30th May to 1st June 2011.
EuroNanoForum is a biannual event supported by the European Commission and organised within the framework of the Presidency of the European Union. EuroNanoForum 2011 will be the fifth event in this series, and will take place under the Hungarian Presidency at the Budapest Congress and World Trade Center from 30th May to 1st June 2011. Previous EuroNanoForum events have attracted 700-1000 participants.
For the first time, EuroNanoForum is joining forces with another leading European nanotechnology event, Nanotech Europe, to provide a single meeting point for the whole nanotechnology community.
The event will cover the whole life cycle of nanotechnology, from basic research to nanotechnology-enabled products. In addition to a full conference programme, a matchmaking programme and exhibition will maximize opportunities for networking.
The EuroNanoForum is a biannual event of the European Commission hosted within the framework of the Presidency of the European Union since 2003. EuroNanoForum 2011 (ENF 2011) will be the fifth event in this series featured as a prominent event of the Hungarian Presidency on 30 May – 1 June 2011 in Budapest.
For the first time, EuroNanoForum is joining forces with another leading European nanotechnology event, Nanotech Europe, to provide a single meeting point for the whole nanotechnology community. Previous EuroNanoForum and Nanotech Europe events have each attracted 700-1000 participants.
The Lund Declaration of July 2009 specifies the Grand Challenges faced by European society and businesses should be solved by sustainable solutions in several areas such as global warming, tightening supplies of energy, water and food, ageing societies, public health, pandemics and security with the overarching challenge of turning Europe into an eco-efficient economy.
Abstracts are expected to specify potential contributions to solving such grand challenges with nanotechnology.
EuroNanoForum 2011 contributions may address scientific, industrial and/or societal aspects:
Science and technology, highlighting world-class research
Innovation and business, identifying nanotechnology opportunities and barriers throughout the value chain
Society, taking a holistic approach to address societal benefits and risks.
Contributions may be in the form of a presentation or a poster.
Applications for presentations and posters may be submitted until 31 January 2011.
