Welcome to the Norwegian NanoSymposium 2019!

Welcome to the Norwegian NanoSymposium 2019!

We are delighted to announce the first ever meeting of the Norwegian NanoSymposium. 

Nanoscience is the hidden engine behind many of the most exciting developments in modern technology. During this two-day meeting, you will see how nanoscale materials, devices and processes are helping to solve some of mankind’s biggest challenges. The programme will include talks from internationally leading scientists and early-stage researchers in many areas of research, including fundamental nanoscience, medicine, energy, and the environment. Other activities will include networking lunches, poster sessions, and a conference dinner. The best oral presentation and poster will be awarded 5000 NOK in travel support to an international conference!

Our aim is to hold a fun, friendly and informal meeting covering all areas of nanoscience, where students and researchers from many disciplines can meet together, share ideas and make new contacts.

Thanks to sponsorship from NTNU Nano, the NanoNetwork and the Research Council of Norway, there is no participation fee, but you will need to register your attendance using the link on the right hand side.

We look forward to welcoming you in Trondheim in October!
