Abstract:
An invitation to a unique free online event: 20 October 2010, 12.45-15.15 GMT (13.45-16.15 BST, 14.45-17.15 CET)

Online workshop on Bridging the Nano Divide

EU | Posted on October 5th, 2010

The ICPC NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This online workshop on Bridging the Nano Divide enables researchers from different disciplines interested in socio-economic and innovation aspects of nanotechnology to meet and find out about each other's expertise, infrastructure and research interests. The invited speakers include Professor Mammo Muchie, expert in Innovation Studies based in South Africa, Professor Arie Rip, Dutch expert in Technology Assessment of Nanotechnology, and Professor Ishenkumba Kahwa, expert in Nanochemistry and Sustainable Development Issues for the CARICOM countries, based in Jamaica.

The prospective audience consists of researchers from Europe and International Cooperation Partner Countries to the EU (emerging economies and developing countries). Participation is free for registered users of the ICPC-NanoNet website (sign up free of charge).
