Following the success of the previous four editions, the promoting organizations Italian Association for Industrial Research (AIRI) and NanoItaly Association are delighted to announce: NanoInnovation 2020, 15-18 September, Rome which will be held in the traditional venue of the Renaissance Cloister by Sangallo at the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering of “Sapienza” University of Rome in Via Eudossiana 18.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, this year the event will be held in a hybrid way: some initiatives will take place only online, while others, including thematic symposia, training courses and much more, will take place both online and in attendance. Of course, the possibility to attend the conference in presence will depend on the epidemic condition and ministerial dispositions, but in any case, it will be possible to follow the conference remotely.
NanoInnovation is the national meeting place for the wide and multidisciplinary community involved in the development of nanotechnologies and their integration with other key enabling technologies (KETs), in all application fields.
The event is designed to inform all interested players:
- Researchers, technologists, managers, entrepreneurs and investors can share their experiences, opinions and expectations about the role of nanotechnologies for future innovations
- Professionals and business operators can better understand how to take advantage from the use and application of nano-related products.
- Young researchers, PhDs and students, can gather latest insights on scientific and technical developments in nanotechnologies
- Media and the public can have an overview of concrete and up-to-date applications of nanotechnologies
The past 2019 edition is just over with the following figures: more than 1.200 participants, 29 co-organizers, 28 exhibitors, 10 industrial and scientific supporters, 5 institutional and scientific patronages, more than 400 speakers and chairs, 2 plenary sessions, 2 opening sessions, 46 technical thematic symposia, 5 multi-session workshops, 3 satellite events, 5 joint events, 1 round table, 3 poster sessions, 3 prizes and 96 B2B meetings successfully organized.
