MicoNanoTec at Hannover Messe 2011
(Nanowerk News) The leading trade fair MicroNanoTec has taken root as an
international market place for high-tech innovations at the
world-wide biggest industry trade fair HANNOVER MESSE.
Almost 40 international companies and institutes have
already decided to participate at the IVAM Product Market
"Micro, Nano & Materials" which is organized by IVAM
Microtechnology Network once again in 2011. At the joint
pavilion, established technologies like silicon and
semiconductor technologies are presented as well as
intersectoral innovations from the fields of microfluidics,
measurement, optics and nanotechnology.
The forum "Innovations for Industry" will profoundly explore
trends and technologies of MicroNanoTec, and it will also
serve as a suitable platform for deepening specialist
discussions. The international forum takes place every day
during the trade fair. The sessions are devoted to selected
issues in the areas of microtechnologies, nanotechnologies
as well as new materials. This year again a session on
"Energy harvesting" as well a session on "Laser technology"
are part of the program. Especially the session on "Energy
harvesting" established itself as an audience magnet in the
last year and attracted a crowd of visitors.
Dedicated to the official partner country of HANNOVER
MESSE 2011, a special "France Session" is planned where
French companies and institutes of the field will give insights
into trends and topics of the neighbour country. To draw
attention to international markets, a "Japan Session" will take
place again this year. For the first time a "US Day" is planned
in the scope of the forum.
At present a participation opportunity for companies is
offered. Information on this and other relating questions is
provided by Katrin Theiler. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
