The ICPC Nanonet 3rd Annual Workshop Review
The ICPC Nanonet Project held its 3rd Annual Workshop last month in St Petersburg. Organised by St Petersburg Electrotechnical University and coinciding with their 125th Anniversary celebrations, this workshop focused on Nanotechnology for Biomedical and Ecological Applications and brought together stakeholders and experts from the EU and each of the eight ICPC regions: Africa, Caribbean, Pacific, Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America, Mediterranean Partner Countries, Western Balkan Countries.
The first day of the workshop enabled the delegates to find out about the latest developments in these fields from regional experts, while the second day provided an in depth insight into the latest research within Russia itself, allowing for further dissemination of highly innovative nano research projects. Through poster presentations and networking sessions, the event offered opportunities to increase and intensify the number of collaborations between the EU and ICPC in N&N areas.
The event was also webcast live to a large number of online participants across the globe, allowing them to present questions to the various speakers as well as interact with each other.
Speaking at the event, Ms Lesley Tobin, the ICPC Nanonet Project Coordinator from the Institute of Nanotechnology, said: “The ICPC Nanonet Project is a unique initiative enabling scientists and researchers from developing countries and emerging economies to network and collaborate with those in the EU and across the globe. We are delighted that so many international delegates have been able to attend and benefit from the networking platforms that the Annual Workshop offered.”
DVDs of the entire workshop are currently in production and will be distributed free on request. If you would like a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full postal address.
The 4th Annual Workshop will be hosted in Goa, India, April 2-4 2012, by the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research.
