The European landmark in nanobiotechnology
(Nanowerk News) The First European network of excellence in Nanobiotechnology, Nano2Life (N2L), will present its main achievements on February 26, 2008, in Brussels for stakeholders, EC representatives and the scientific community. The event will be at Stanhope Hotel, Rue du Commerce, 9, between 2:30-7:00 pm. A press conference will be held from noon till 1:00 pm.
After four years of operation, Nano2Life has become the visible face of European nanobiotechnology and is the most active European network in this field. Founded in 2004 it comprises 23 major European R&D organisations from 12 countries and 30 associated partners from industry and academia.
N2L will highlight at this event its scientific, technological, educational, ethical and human resources-linked achievements obtained during four years of collaboration:
A poster show and invited key-note speakers will present all facets of the network initiated joint research collaborations, technology transfer, gender, IPR and the innovative and inspiring the so famous "N2L - spirit"
The meeting will be the platform to discuss the importance of such a European nanobiotechnology community in order to face the competitive challenges from the US and/or Japan. Lessons from the past, success and failures will help the design of the future European capacity in nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine.
