LTFN and NANOTEXNOLOGY 2019 Highlights

NANOTEXNOLOGY 2019 concluded successfully on the 6th of July 2018, after an exciting week of innovative scientific, technological, business and networking parallel events. Nanotechnology Lab LTFN, together with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nano|Net Research and Innovation Network, HOPE-A and the Horizon 2020 Projects, Smartline and CORNET co-organized this year’s multi-event. Thank you for visiting our booth and meeting us and our activities!
This year NANOTEXNOLOGY 2019 comprised more than 650 exciting presentations from 56 Countries providing an overview of the latest advances and future prospects in Nanotechnologies, Organic Electronics & Photonics, 3D Printing & Bioprinting, and Nanomedicine.
The starting point of this year’s NANOTEXNOLOGY were the ISSON19 Summer Schools commenced on Saturday 29th of June. ISSON19 comprised fascinating lectures and demonstrations of state-of-the-art techniques on Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies, Organic Electronics and Nanomedicine gathering more than 110 students from 25 different countries and 60 poster presentations!
