EuroNanoForum 2011 will cover the whole life cycle of nanotechnology, from basic research to nanotechnology-enabled products. Conference topics will highlight world class research, developing European competitiveness in nanotechnology and building public trust and engagement.

EuroNanoForum will explore how nanotechnology can contribute to sustainable solutions for Grand Challenges faced by European society and businesses 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.

EuroNanoForum 2011 will discuss scientific, industrial and societal issues, including:

  • 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
