Annual Conference NanoCarbon 2015

From 24.-25.02.2015 the Network NanoCarbon is hosting the "Annual Conference NanoCarbon 2015" in Würzburg, Germany continuing the tradition of the annual Inno.CNT conference. The accompanying forum organized by the Nanoinitiative Bayern GmbH offers interested parties the opportunity to present demonstrators and products.


The Annual Conference NanoCarbon 2015 continues the tradition of the Inno.CNT annual conference while extending the area of covered topics and expanding to an international level. It is the communication platform for innovative and commercial activities in the field of carbon nanomaterials (CNTs, graphenes, nanohorns, carbon black,...), within Germany and on an international level.

The congress offers the interested community an open and creative forum for exchanging results and ideas. The conference will focus on new applications and processing technologies for all carbon nanomaterials. It is particularly aimed at members from industry who want to get information on the manifold chances of carbon nanomaterials and seek new partners for cooperating in new products.


Key topics

  • materials, processing and semi-finished products
  • new products and applications
  • safe handling in production


Further information and a detailed program of the conference will be available via the following link http://www.nanoinitiative-bayern.de/nc/en/news/detail/article/jahrestagung-2015-des-netzwerks-nanocarbon.html
