NanoCarbon Annual Conference 2016

The second Annual Conference of the Network NanoCarbon will take place from 23. - 24. February 2016 at the University of Wurzburg, Campus Hubland Süd. The NanoCarbon Annual Conference 2016 aims to continue the tradition of the annual Inno.CNT congresses while extending the area of covered topics and expanding to an international level. The conference is the most important communication platform for innovative and commercial activities in the field of carbon nanomaterials (e.g. CNTs, graphene, nanohorns, carbon black), within Germany and beyond..


The Annual Conference offers an open and creative forum to the interested community for exchanging results and ideas. New applications and processing technologies for carbon nanomaterials are in the focus of the event. It particularly targets industry delegates seeking new trends and partners for novel cooperations.


In addition to the lecture program, you will have the opportunity to present posters, demonstrators and products in an accompanying exhibition.



Key topics:

  • Materials, semi-finished parts and processing technologies
  • Applications and products
  • Safe handling during production
