nano tech 10 years special program attracted the public's attention
A 10-year anniversary special showcase with the theme "Towards the next innovation with nanotechnology" illustrated how nanotechnology can contribute to an abundant lifestyle. The exhibition space designed as a living room attracted the attention of visitors. Cosmetic products, an electric vehicle, LED lightening and a glassless 3D television, all based on the use of nano technology, were on display.
Moreover, a nanotechnology chronological table tracking all inventions and discoveries, which contributed to the development of nanotechnology, was distributed to visitors of the show. This table shows the importance of nanotechnology as a fundamental technology for research and development of Materials, ICT/Electronics, Biotechnology and Energy.
nano tech Award Winners
The 10th nano tech Award ceremony took place on the last day of the exhibition. Every year, members of the nano tech executive committee choose outstanding exhibitors showing original and advanced technologies. The 2011 winners of the nano tech Awards are as follows:
