Investigating nanotechnology

January 30, 2002

Brussels, 29 January 2002

Two events held in London will examine the future of nanotechnology in spring 2002.

On 19 March scientists, industrialists and investors will gather at the event to discuss nanotechnology applications and future potential. The event is specifically targeted at the investment community, including business angels, venture capitalists and investment fund managers.

The event will offer an opportunity for organisations to meet and interact with key figures at the highest level in the European nanotechnology community.

On 24 and 25 April, a two day conference will explore the question of 'Nanotechnology - the next industrial revolution?'

Entrepreneurs and futurists will present their work and share technologies which revolutionise day to day life. Delegates will learn about the new business opportunities that nanotechnology presents and how nanotechnology is already having an impact on products as diverse as novel foods, retinal, cochlear and neural implants, pigments and coatings, personal health diagnostics, security and crime detection, space medicine, smart paints, disposable displays, games and entertainment.
