Abstract:
The Nanopaprika - www.nanopaprika.eu connect on a daily basis 5100 researchers, students from more than 80 countries since 27th November 2007. The portal provides a virtual meeting point for nanotechnology professionals and enthusiasts dealing with different branches of nanosciences.

Four years in the service of nanoscientists - 5100 nanotechnology researchers connected by a Hungarian PhD student

Budapes, Hungary | Posted on November 25th, 2011

"It's all started accidentally"
- recalls András Paszternák, PhD, founder of the portal. "One cold November morning, I met Professor Erika Kálmán, my PhD supervisor, at the corridor of the Chemical Research Center of Hungarian Academy of Sciences. She offer me to edit an already existing Hungarian nanowebpage. I asked for time to reflect, and in next day I suggested to start a community site, which will be updated with new content by members." adds the Postdoctoral Fellow from Bar-Ilan University.

The page can be described as a place of constant renewal from the beginning. In 2011 it has become even more attractive with an international virtual poster conference, research teams and members "HOT papers" database.

Today there are many from USA, across Europe to Asia who are using the webpage to find new jobs, awards, or partners to start joint research projects.

"The numbers (2000 blog entries, 500 forum topics, 120 thematic groups) are not relevant. The informal tone is in which we are different from sites edited by research institutes, universities, nanocompanies. As a PhD student, I learned that next to the laboratory work, results publishing, there is another additional important thing. The personal relationship between the domestic and foreign professionals in our research area. Nanopaprika uses the tools of Internet to build these connections"- says the chemist, founder of the independent social network.

The portal even managed to remain standing and to grow in last four years, next to the vast increase of global social networks, and serve the people involved in nanotechnology.
