"The meeting was very useful in the sense that we were able to share experiences and also learn from NANOTEC" said Prof. Ushioda, Chairman of IAB. "It is quite interesting to see and hear that many issues do not only pertains to Thailand but also experienced in other countries such as Japan, Australia, Switzerland, and the USA. Overall, NANOTEC research flagship regarding clean water, control release fertilizer, vector control systems, nano-cosmeceutical, nano-labelling, smart soil, and nano biosensors is most appropriate and on the right track".

"My recommendation for the 2012 IAB meeting is to allow for more scientific presentations by researchers on the various publications" said Prof. Krug. "Presentations by individual IAB members might be given less priority. This way, we can give specific input related to individual research projects".

This recommendation was also echoed by Prof. Hara who added that the scientific presentation by NANOTEC researchers should also be based on originally scientific data.

The decision when to hold the 2012 IAB meeting is still undecided. However, there is a talk on a November meeting.
