Trends in Nanotechnology - TNT2006
September 04-08, 2006
MINATEC (Grenoble-France)
Contact details: Antonio Correia (

One of the main objectives of the Trends in Nanotechnology conference is to provide a platform where young researchers can present their latest works and also interact with high-level scientists. For this purpose, 76 grants (travel bursaries) were available in 2005. In addition 28 prices (around 8000 Euros) to best student posters were awarded. More than 60 senior scientists were involved in the selection process. Grants and awards were funded by the TNT Organisation in collaboration with an increasing number of Research Institutions and Industrials involved in Nanotechnology.

TNT2006 is been launched following the overwhelming success of earlier Nanotechnology Conferences. The TNT2006 edition will be organised out of Spain for the first time - Grenoble (France) - to emphasise the importance at the European level of the launch of the Centre of Innovation in Micro and Nanotechnology, MINATEC. This centre, to be inaugurated in June 2006, came into existence at the instigation of CEA-LETI Grenoble and Institut National Polytechnique Grenoble and its ambition is to become Europe's top centre for innovation and expertise in micro & nanotechnology.

TNT2006 "Trends in Nanotechnology" (04-08 September, 2006) will be held in the brand new congress facilities of the Micro & Nanotechnology House within the MINATEC complex. The TNT2006 structure will keep the fundamental features of the previous editions, providing a unique opportunity for broad interaction. TNT2006 will be organised by the following institutions: Phantoms Foundation, Universidad de Oviedo, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Donostia International Physics Center, NIMS, University de Purdue, Georgia Tech. and CEA-LETI-DRFMC.
