HiPerNano 2018: Nanotechnology for Clean Growth Event

27 Jun 2018
London, UK

Supported by IOM3

Nanotechnology developers and users are invited for a series of discussions, debates, and presentations covering different areas

Global Nanotechnology Market is expected to reach $174bn by 2025 at a grow CAGR of 18%. A high growth market is driven by the ever-increasing demand for device miniaturization, improved performance, functionality integration whilst clean technologies and innovations are gaining more and more traction from governments and industries.

At this event, nanotechnology developers and users are invited for a series of discussions, debates, and presentations covering different areas where nanotechnology can play a key role in clean growth. Topics include resource efficiencyenvironmentally friendly nanomaterials, clean mobility, and energy.

Who should attend?

Researchers, industrialists, end-users.
