NanoEurope 2008 - Linking business and science

(PresseBox) (St.Gallen, ) The NanoEurope will once again open its gates in St.Gallen, Switzerland from September 16 - 17, 2008. Held for the sixth time this year, this leading European exhibition for the transfer of nanotechnology know-how will for the first time provide a forum on nanotechnology commercialization strategies. It is designed to further foster a fruitful exchange between the research and business communities. Exhibitors registering before March 31 qualify for an early bird discount.

After the successful event last year, which some 3,500 visitors from over 40 countries attended, the NanoEurope will once again this year provide a meeting platform for the interested specialist public. The international congress will present successful commercial nanotechnology applications and introduce new scientific knowledge that can be commercialized. The exhibition, held concurrently with the congress, offers businesses from a wide range of technology sectors a platform to display solutions for commercializing nanotechnology research results. Credit Suisse will once again act as Platinum Sponsor at this year s NanoEurope.

Strengthening the links between science and business

Under the heading "CEO s Perspective," the NanoEurope 2008 will for the first time organize a forum for decision-makers from the business community. Top managers from successful nano-technology companies will discuss the business perspectives of nanotechnology and show how opportunities can be seized by developing concrete commercial applications. It will be followed by an Investment & Business Seminar on "Nano-Business Ideas" in which one of the subjects will be ideas for investors planning to invest in nanotechnology. The technical focus of this year s event will be on the areas of sensor and actuator systems plus the functionalization of surfaces and innovative materials. Attendees will not merely receive key information, but also be offered the opportunity to exchange views and ideas with leading experts from the business and scientific communities. With its specialist congress, which is addressed to businesses, investors, and researchers, the NanoEurope will step up the efforts started last year to link the latest research findings with commercial business applications. The internationally renowned NanoRegulation Conference will again be held in 2008 as part of the NanoEurope. This year s NanoRegulation Conference will be governed by the motto "Beyond Regulation - Voluntary Measures in Nano Risk Governance."
