Nano Expo 07

Nano Expo 07 was succesfully held on Last 16 & 17 May 2007 at EMCC, Nottingham.

Robin Hood's land welcomed the nanotech and nanoscience community. There was time for business and for science in the last Nano Expo in the East Midlands Conference Center, Nottingham. Nanotoxicology is one of the most controversial topics of nanotechnology. People from Eminate (organizers of the event) are well aware of this and they prepared very interesting talks about it, with the presence of the FDA from USA.

There was also talks related to The Impact of Regulations on the Application of Nanotechnology, Diagnostics, imaging and sensors, Manufacturing & Commercialisation, Nano-particles, drug delivery and Future opportunities and public perception.

The city gave a reception to all participants in the Council House of Nottingham. There was also a public lecture 'Nanotechnology: life-changing new applications' by Dr Alan Smith.

Companies like Carl Zeiss, Nanocentral and associations like ENTA were in the event. Nanogap represented spanish nanotechnology once again. Luis Manuel Alonso, Nanogap business manager has informed us that Nanogap is now part of the NIA (Nanotechnology Industries Association; Nanogap is now part of the two major associations of european nanotechnology, ENTA and the NIA.



The past 2nd of May ENTA ( organized the lastest event of the NanoMicroClub.
This time the event took place in the Liverpool Science Park, where Chloe Harding showed the participants the possibilities of the building for high-tech baseds companies.
The main topic of the day was 'Financing stragies of a nanotech companies'. People from the ION and from Liverpool Venture presented general financing strategies. The patents topic was also discussed by Neil Parkinson from Marks & Clerk. MagneCell and Tatiana Lopez from Nanogap Sub-nm-powders presented their particular cases as 'case study', and Leif B. Hansen from Nanocover closed the sesion with an expectacular presentation of his company and products.
As Del Stark (from ENTA) said, 'The goal of these sesions it's not only to discuss about the proposed topic but also doing networking and introduce yourself to other stakeholders of the market'. This goal was absolutely achieved thanks to the brilliant organization disposed by ENTA.
Great networking and also good financing ideas in the same day!


Nanomaterials 07

These past 30 April-1 May Nanomaterials 07 took place at The Sage - Gateshead, in Newcastle. NanoMaterials07 is the first conference in Europe specifically targeted at existing and potential users of nanomaterials.

In contrast to other events which focus on technology or theoretical benefits NanoMaterials07 featured a variety of national and international companies active in the nanomaterials revolution. Leading industry experts talked about the opportunities and challenges facing different markets in the commercialisation of nanomaterials.

The event was organized by Nanocentral and they did a remarkable job. Everything was simply perfect. On one hand, interestings talks from four different fields: Personal & Health care; Materials for electronics; Plastics, Polymers & Composites and last but no least Coatings & Inks. Companies as Smith&Nephew, Unilever, Seagate, Airbus and MacDermid talked about differents topics related to these fields. Extremely interesting was the talk given by Prof. Steven Abbott from MacDermid, talking about the Nano-providers as other stakeholder and placing the bases for what the new nanomaterial market should be.

On the other hand, the exhibition area counted with the presence of companies as Nanolake, Veeco, Johnson Matthey and Nanogap Sub-nm-powders. Most of them from the UK being Nanogap one of the exceptions, showing the high nanoparticle production level that there is in Spain.


First Young Polymer Scientist Conference

First Young Polymer Scientist Conference and Fifth Short Course on Block Copolymer–Based Nanomaterials.

During the last week of March the First Young Polymer Scientist Conference and Fifth Short Course on Block Copolymer–Based Nanomatirials took place in Santiago de Compostela organized by NANOFUN-POLY. The main objective of NANOFUN-POLY is to generate a Network of Excellence designed to become a European Center of Nanostructured Polymers and Polymer-based Nanocomposite Materials, strengthening the scientific, technological and training excellence in all the disciplines that contribute to the development of this important field.

The aim of this congress is to gather the young European polymer scientists and to promote discussion among junior researchers, and between junior researchers and established scientists. Moreover, the Fifth Short Course focused on a fast-moving sector such as block copolymer-based nanomaterials. All stages from synthesis, characterization and self-assembly to nanostructure fabrication and applications were covered through a multidisciplinary approach.
The next event organized by NANOFUN will be the 3rd international symposium on nanostructured and functional polymer-based materials and nanocomposites which will take place in Corfu, Greece from May 13th to 15th, 2007.


Nanotech Northern Europe 2007

From the 27th to the 29th of March the Nanotech Northern Europe in Helsinki, Finland took place . This event has become one of the most important symposiums related to nanotechnology and biochemistry.

The event had two parts, the scientific workshop and the exhibition area. Companies like Nokia, Tekkes and UPM were in the event exhibiting their latest researchs in these fields and looking for new customers and providers. The main part of the fair area was dedicated to BioChem'07, the biochemical part of the fair. Due to the interdisciplinarity of the actual science scene, the Nanotech area fitted in perfectly with the biochemical one. Drug delivery, magnetic cell separation for DNA sequencing, ... on one hand the tools and on the other hand the final applications in biomedical fields.

The first day there was a welcome dinner with the presence of a nanotechnological Chinese comitte. Some very interesting topics were discussed related to potential applications, risks and hazards and new oportunities, like the role that China will play in the future of the scientific community, the need of new and sustainable energies and new medical treatments.

The second day the city of Helsinki offered a reception in the City Hall to the event participants.

Americans, Finnish, Swedish, British, Greeks, Italians and also Spanish! The spanish representation consisted of people from CSIC, UPV, ICN and Nanogap Sub-nm-powders. This representation showed the high level of nanotechnology and nanoscience in Spain.

Great scientific expositions, great host city and great business oportunites.
