Nanotechnology in Northern Europe 2006 selects best speakers

Posted on May 31, 2006

Nanotechnology in Northern Europe 2006 – the largest nanotech event in the region was held in Helsinki for the second time, from the 16th - 18th May 2006. The event attracted a total of 650 participants from over 100 organisations and 25 countries. The diversity of the event was demonstrated by the sessions (from Molecular and Quantum Electronics to Commercialisation and IPR), and the range of participants.

In order to recognize the efforts of the event speakers, NTNE 2006 encouraged attendees to vote for the best speakers in each of four categories. The winners were:

  • Best Academic Speaker: Professor Lars Samuelson
    Professor Samuelson, a leading figure in nanotechnology research from Lund University in Sweden, presented the latest breakthroughs in nanowire technology.
  • Best Governmental Speaker: Nicholas Hartley (Head of the Unit, Strategy and Policy, European Commission)
    Dr. Hartley received this recognition for his keynote address, in which he set out the role of nanotechnology in the EU framework programme.
  • Best Industry Speaker: Morten Stilling (Atomistix)
    Morten’s contribution, ‘Crystalline Magnetotunnel Junctions’ featured as part of a session on nanotechnology instruments and tools.
  • Best Professional Services Speaker: Katja Feiring and Jukka Korhonen (Papula-Nevinpat)
    Katja and Jukka presented an informative guide to nanotech patenting.

Many of the academics attending the conference presented posters detailing their latest research. The conference Scientific Committee selected a number of posters for special recognition. The Best Poster Award was given to Rainer Koch and co-workers from Institut für Reine und Angewandte Chemie, Germany.

A number of events took place alongside the congress sessions, including a Nanotech Venture Forum. The event featured a lively panel discussion with leading venture capitalists, followed by an opportunity for seven companies to pitch their company to the panel members. Of these companies, Amroy Europe won the Best Nanotech Venture Award. Amroy has a recently developed a carbon nanotube based material called Hybtonite, which has applications in products ranging from wind turbine blades to ice hockey sticks.

Presentations from the congress are available to be viewed on the event website at www.nano.fi/ntne2006.

Nanotech Northern Europe 2007 will continue to grow as the largest nanotechnology event in the region. More information will be available by the end of June at www.nanotech.net.
