Brussels, 12 Jun 2003
A nano forum aimed at examining the present situation in the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in Europe will take place from 9 to 12 December in Trieste, Italy.
The forum will gather all concerned actors, at different levels, to discuss and exchange experience regarding nanotechnology, within the context of the European Research Area (ERA), the forthcoming enlargement of the EU and the international dimension and integrating character of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).
More specifically, participants will be asked to consider and eventually identify potential 'bottlenecks' to the expansion and reinforcement of nanosciences in general, and to the subsequent formulation, development, application and use of nanotechnology-based products and services.
The event is being supported by the European Commission.
