Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference (TNT2015)

InterNano - Upcoming Events - April 27, 2015 - 7:49am
September 7, 2015 - The 16th edition of Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference (TNT2015) is being launched following the overwhelming success of earlier Nanotechnology Conferences. The TNT2015 edition will take place in Toulouse (France). This high-level scientific meeting series aims to present a broad range of current research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology as well as related policies (European Commission, etc.) or other kind of initiatives (iNANO, nanoGUNE, MANA, GDR-I, etc.). TNT events have demonstrated that they are particularly effective in transmitting information and establishing contacts among workers in this field. The TNT2015 structure will keep the fundamental features of the previous editions, providing a unique opportunity for broad interaction.
