EuroNanoForum 2015

The EuroNanoForum 2015 (ENF 2015) conference takes place on 10-12 June 2015 in Riga, at the Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija, under the auspices of the Latvian presidency of the European Union. The three-day event aims to attract 1200 delegates from more than 50 countries.

The attendees will have numerous opportunities to hear the latest news from the nanotechnologies and advanced materials community, see cutting-edge technologies, and network with innovative companies, distinguished research organisations, as well as important stakeholders of various European technology clusters, organisations and platforms.

The EuroNanoForum biannual series of conferences has grown since 2003 into the most significant European forum in its field for discussions amongst scientists, industrialists and policy makers, offering vast opportunities for networking with key decision makers and finding opportunities for partnerships and funding.


The conference widely covers the areas of nanotechnologies and advanced materials You can now get acquainted with the preliminary conference programme. The provisional plenary themes are:

  • Industrial nanotechnology and advanced materials supporting European re-industrialisation
  • Trends and innovation demands on nanotechnology and advanced materials
  • Infrastructures and framework conditions for rapid deployment of nanotechnologies and advanced materials Winning the competition: success stories and lessons learned

The provisional tracks for the parallel sessions are:

  • Nanotechnology in industrial applications
  • Advances in enabling nanotechnologies, nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing
  • Collaborations and policies for accelerating innovation and uptake of nanotechnology based solutions


Early Bird registration

By registering to the conference by 15 March, 2015, you can benefit from the Early Bird fees and make sure that you get a ticket even if the event gets fully-booked. The registration will open in December 2014.
