Graphene Canada 2016

National Nanomanufacturing Network - August 31, 2016 - 9:36am
ConferenceTuesday, October 18, 2016 to Thursday, October 20, 2016Montreal, Canada http://www.graphenecanadaconf.com/2016/ Montreal (Canada) will host the 2nd edition of the Graphene & 2D Materials International Conference and Exhibition: October 18-20, 2016. Graphene Canada 2016 will be a 3 days event that means to gather the key players of the Graphene Community and related sectors. This event is launched following the lack of meetings in the field in Canada and aims to become an established event, attracting global participants, intent on sharing, exchanging and exploring new avenues of graphene-related scientific and commercial developments. The Industrial Forum will present the most recent advances in technology developments and business opportunities in graphene commercialization. Key representatives of “graphene companies” will share their market vision and business opportunities, while selected talks from industrial exhibitors will present commercial showcases in all current market fields of graphene products.
