Abstract:
12.45pm - 15.15pm, Wednesday 2nd, Tuesday 8th and Tuesday 15th December 2009

An invitation to a unique series of three free online workshops: ‘Nanotechnology for Water Purification’

Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America | Posted on November 25th, 2009

The ICPC-NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This online workshop on "Nanotechnology for Water Purification" aims to bring together experts in this field who are interested in cooperating with their peers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America and other parts of the world. Such cooperation may benefit from EU funding opportunities under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technology Development FP7. The workshop highlights the scientific and technical state of the art as well as relevant calls for proposals. Register now at: www.icpc-nanonet.org/OnlineWorkshop/index.html
