(Nanowerk News) The Phantoms Foundation and the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) will bring together for the first time a nanoscience and nanotechnology Spain Pavilion at Taiwan Nano 2010 (October 7-9, 2010 - Taipei World Trade Center Hall 1, Taipei, Taiwan). In its 8th edition, Taiwan Nano hosts International Exhibition, a forum for market opportunitites of nanoproducts, K-12 Educational Forum for Nanotechnology Nanoenergy as well as networking and partnerships.
Leading Spanish nanoscience and nanotechnology companies and research centers will showcase innovative technologies and projects from Spain under "Spanish Nanoscience and Technological Offer" presenting uses and advances in nanotechnology to better integrate the Spanish Science-Technology-Company-Society in Taiwan and the Global Market.
The Spain Pavilion will promote the "Spanish Nanoscience and Technological Offer", allowing to represent the scientific, technological and innovative agents of the country as a whole, to foster relationships with other Taiwan Nano 2010 participants, to promote country culture of innovation, to better integrate the Spanish "Science-Technology-Company-Society" system in Taiwan, to generate and to develop scientific and technological knowledge, to improve competitiveness and to contribute to the economic and social development of Spain.
The Spanish participation will group Companies and Research Centres providing an outlook of the most innovative projects and products in various fields of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology.
Participating companies/institutions within the Spain Pavilion:
