Workshop

The European Commission, together with DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron - Research Centre of the Helmholtz Association) and the NSF (US National Science Foundation) will be organising a two day workshop on 23-24 June 2010 in Hamburg on "Long-term Impacts and Future Opportunities for Nanoscale Science and Engineering" with a group of high level experts from Europe and the US.

The two main objectives of the workshop are:
(i) to evaluate the R&D worldwide progress made in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology since 2000, and
(ii) to discuss research directions for the next ten years based on current research and scenario development.
The outcomes of the meeting will be used to give an expert opinion on future directions for nanotechnology R&D to the professional community and funding organizations both in the US and EU. In particular, the outcomes will be highly relevant for the preparation of the new European Action Plan  for Nanotechnologies.

In brief, after a morning plenary session, the core of the workshop will consist of 2 half-days of 6 parallel breakout sessions composed of small groups of experts (4-8 people) to discuss on the state of the art and future opportunities of nanotechnologies in specific area (see attachment).

European Strategy for Nanotechnology 2010-2015

European Strategy for Nanotechnology 2010-2015 is preparing by the European Commission (EC). The document should be finished in June 2010. All member-countries, including the Czech Republic participate in its preparation.
This document should be based on 3 pillars:
I. Innovation and Research
Support of nanotechnology RTD, including applied research close to the market
II. Regulatory Pillar
standardization, legislation reflecting nano-applications coming to the market
III. Public Trust and Confidence
labelling of products, etc.

Nanotechnology in Germany

The Report about nano research and applications has been published by Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (BMBF) The detail report called „Status Quo of Nanotechnology in Germany“ is available at www.bmbf.de.

Nanotechnology Exhibition in Brno (CZ)

The exhibition called „Nanotechnology“ is possible to visit in the Technical Museum Brno (CZ) from December 29th 2009 to May 2010. There is the presentation of the Nanosection CSNMT activities as well.

The presentation commemorates the storied speech „There is plenty of room at the bottom“ of the American physician Richard Feynman 50 years ago. By this speech he outlined the vision of molecular structure inducement, which has been a crucial point for nanoscience and nanotechnology development. The main target of the exhibition is to present the Feynman vision and to show the possibilities of university study of nanotechnology in the Czech Republic.
