Successful exhibition puts nanotechnology in focus

Nanotec Forum 2006 In Stockholm

Posted on March 13, 2006

Nanotec Forum will be arranged for the third time in Stockholm. The exhibition has profiled itself as one of the most important events in this field in northern Europe.

This year’s event will highlight the latest research findings and technical innovations, but also the development of commercial products.

The forum features both an exhibition and a congress. Up to 100 companies, research insti-tutes and organizations are expected to participate in the exhibition this year. The congress with expected 300 delegates, has four main themes:

  • Materials Science and Technology
  • Energy and Environment
  • Nanomedicine
  • IT and Electronics

Nanotechnology is about manipulating materials at atomic level through improvements or by adding properties. Users of the technology include the automotive industry, biotechnology, IT, the food and the construction industry.

Apple, for instance, has introduced its super thin iPod nano, which is half the size of competi-tive players and can store up to 1000 songs. The automotive industry will also be greatly af-fected by the new technology. Almost all the automobile components can be improved by nanotechnology, for example, to reduce weight and enhance material functions.

Nanotec Forum will be held at the Rica Talk Hotel, adjacent to the Stockholm International Fairs in Älvsjö. The hotel features an exhibition area next to the conference center, providing excellent opportunities for networking and making new contacts.

The combination of conference and exhibition makes Nanotec Forum interesting for start-ups in the industry, companies that use nanotechnology in their research and development, re-searchers at universities, investors and those who work with technology transfer at universi-ties.

Last year’s event was very successful and many exhibitors were satisfied with the fact that the visitors represented the right mix of venture capitalists, managers and researchers.
