Home > Press > Research and industry frontrunners gather in Dublin at the EuroNanoForum, Europe’s largest nanotechnology conference

Abstract:
The EuroNanoForum 2013 starts today at the Convention Centre in Dublin, Ireland. The 6th biannual conference is the place for the global nanotechnology community to hear about the latest research findings, to convey visions for the market impact of nanotechnology, and to demonstrate commercial products at the Nanotech Europe exhibition. The event brings together the field's top scientists, leading international companies and high-level decision-makers in order to advance the beneficial use of nanotechnology.

Research and industry frontrunners gather in Dublin at the EuroNanoForum, Europe’s largest nanotechnology conference

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on June 18th, 2013

EuroNanoForum 2013 looks at the whole picture of nanotechnology; highlighting the role of the right financing instruments and collaboration beyond borders, or addressing challenges to the nanotechnology development from across the world, especially in the key societal sectors such as health, energy and environment. Among the 1,500 delegates and contributors are high profile speakers from industry, government and research, such as Shell, Nokia Research Laboratories, Intel, Philips Healthcare and Max-Planck Institute, discussing the economic and technological impact of nanotechnologies on European growth.

The Nanotech Europe exhibition hosts a market place for various players in the field, including clusters, companies, start-ups and spin-offs as well as technology transfer organisations, universities, EU-projects and EU-institutions from more than 20 countries. On Tuesday, the Irish Showcase brings up innovative Irish companies as a part of Nanoweek Ireland, and on the 19th and 20th of June, all the exhibitors have the chance of introducing themselves in exciting pitches.
Throughout the whole conference, the Magical Materials Exhibition enables visitors to explore the properties of some of the world's most futuristic and intriguing materials, giving them an opportunity to investigate and experiment at the cutting edge of nano and materials science. During the event, also the Intel Business Challenge Europe 2013 Finals take place, bringing together innovative products, smart technologies and interactive web&mobile applications.

Herbert von Bose, Director, Industrial Technologies, The European Commission comments: "Nanotechnology plays an important role in the overall European policy context, and demonstrate why it is vital for Europe to seize the leadership in nanotechnologies as in other Key Enabling Technologies, as a springboard to economic prosperity and to sustainable solutions to the biggest challenges facing our society. This 6th EuroNanoForum plays an important role in communicating this to our stakeholders and the community at large and I would like to thank the Irish Presidency for staging this so excellently."

Pekka Koponen, CEO of Spinverse and co-organiser continues: "A limiting factor of Europe's competitiveness is current speed of bringing innovations to the market. Euronanoforum 2013 is a major force on bridging the commercialization gaps between industry, academia, public funding agencies and venture capital. The speeches and exhibition demonstrate recent successes in commercialization from large companies such as Intel, Philips and UPM to instrument companies like Beneq, Biolin Scientific and Raith. There is plenty of more innovation hidden in our research institutes we should get to the market."

Frank Ryan, CEO, Enterprise Ireland commented: "The EuroNanoForum is a must for companies looking to exploit or learn how to exploit the latest nanotechnology developments, as well as an opportunity for researchers to discuss their visions for European industries and research in the future. Ireland is a leading player in this sector and a high profile conference such this delivers the message that Ireland is open for business on all fronts. and this is only the beginning as nanotechnology has been earmarked as one of Europe's Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) and will feature prominently in the forthcoming EU funding programme Horizon 2020."

EuroNanoForum 2013 is the largest nanotechnology conference in Europe and focuses on the impact of nanotechnology in improving people's lives, especially in the key societal sectors such as health, energy and environment. It is evident that in the nearest future nanotechnology can be used to create new ways of producing energy, better medical diagnostics and treatments to handle diseases like cancer or to manufacture smaller and more powerful electronic devices, which can recharge your mobile phone within seconds.

The conference is organised by Enterprise Ireland and Spinverse Ltd and supported by the European Commission Directorate for Research and Innovation.
