EuroNanoForum 2017 – Europe’s largest Nanotechnology Conference – to be hosted in Malta

Malta will host the eight edition of the EuroNanoForum – Europe’s largest Nanotechnology conference – on the 21st to the 23rd of June 2017 under the auspices of the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.

EuroNanoForum 2017 is organised by Malta Enterprise, the Malta Council for Science and Technology, the University of Malta and Spinverse from Finland in cooperation with the European Union’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The forum will focus on European technology development in nanotechnologies and advanced materials industries, discussing the latest progress in nanoscience and nanotechnologies and their contribution to innovation in manufacturing across all industrial sectors. The applications of nanotechnology in low carbon green energy, electronics, healthcare, consumer goods, transportation, construction industry, machinery and process tools, electromechanical and fluidic systems and printing will all be looked into. Framework conditions such as standardisation, regulations, IPR and safety issues as well as entrepreneurship and industrial policy will also be discussed.

ENF2017 will feature sessions on finance and funding through European and national programmes, in particular Horizon 2020. The programme includes 3 Plenaries, 15 Sessions, 50 exhibitors and more than 70 high-level speakers from industry, government and research and offers multiple occasions for industry leaders, researchers and students to get involved.

EuroNanoForum will offer the opportunity to companies and researchers willing to exploit the latest developments in nanotechnology as well as to share their visions for industry and research.

Nanotech Europe, an exhibition organised by Spinverse, will showcase the latest achievements in projects whilst conference delegates have the opportunity to participate in several Workshops and a Brokerage event. In addition, the ‘Best Poster’ and ‘Best Project’ awards will put young talents and promising new solutions in the spotlight.
