Nanotech Europe 2009 - Understanding the commercial impact of nanotechnology
(Nanowerk News) As we begin to see early signals of economic recovery in Europe, Nanotech Europe (September 28-30, 2009 in Berlin, Germany) looks at the role nanotechnology will play in future economic development. Join the event to learn:
What firms across a wide range of industrial sectors need from nanotechnology; Nokia, Shell, Daimler, Thales, Fiat, Bayer and many others will talk about their activities and how they see nanotechnology affecting their industry
How major open innovation players seek out and develop external technologies. The Executive Forum, in partnership with Lux Research, will cover best practices in technology scouting, key strategies for open innovation, and why open innovation is so relevant in nanotechnology. The forum features contributions from Oerlikon, Procter & Gamble, Merck, DSM, Dow, Good Energies, Solvay, Kuraray, Nanogate, Elmarco, Dow Chemical and the European Commission
What independent and corporate VCs are looking for when they review start-ups in nanotechnology
How public funding leaders from the European Commission, Russia, China, France, Singapore, Finland and the UK are planning to support nanotechnology commercialisation
All this is in addition to a large exhibition of tools, instruments and the services, and over 30 sessions featuring some of the most innovative nanotechnologies from across the globe.
The atrium is completely sold out, but there are still a few free exhibition stands left in the venue. Reserve your space now by contacting Hanna Timonen (firstname.lastname@example.org , +358 40 779 5869).
