Have you ever thought of what is in your rejuvenating face cream, why sun screen protects your skin from getting burnt and why your carpets don’t get stains, even after spilling some red wine? The answer is nanotechnology and nano-materials.
The European Commission has chosen Graphene as one of Europe’s first 10-year, 1,000 million euro FET flagships. The mission of the flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionise multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe.
Spinverse has today announced the Nanotech Europe exhibition, which will be part of the EuroNanoForum 2013 conference held 18-20 June, in Dublin, Ireland. This launch coincides with the event website launch and introduction of the new logo.
Today in his speech, Mr Pekka Koponen, CEO of Spinverse Ltd, highlighted the importance of co-operation in high-tech and innovation between Finland and Russia, stating: “Nanotechnology, the atomic-level precision in developing new materials, is predicted to be the most fundamental force for new products in all industries. The area is funded by billions per year, Rusnano being one of the largest individual investors globally.”
After the successful EuroNanoForum 2011 in Budapest, Spinverse continues the conference series from 18.-20. June 2013 in the Convention Center Dublin.
The second Partner Day on the Finnish-Russian Innovation Alliance on Nanotechnology held on 14 June 2012
The second Finnish-Russian Innovation Alliance on Nanotechnology Partner Day was held within the frameworks of the 3rd EU-Russia Innovation Forum & 21st EBN Annual Congress in Lappeenranta, Finland on 14.06.2012
The event’s aim was to discuss challenges related to IPR management within the frameworks of cross-border nanotechnology commercialization and cover crucial themes that should be taken into account when technology is looking for investors. The seminar was arranged by Spinverse and there were over 50 participants including Innovation Alliance Partner Organizations, from both academia and business in Europe and Russia.

Spinverse and ObservatoryNANO provide nanotechnology landscape report to policy makers
European faces a number of ‘Grand Challenges’, outlined in the Lund Declaration 2009, such as the global warming, tightening supplies of energy, water and food, ageing societies, public health, pandemics and security. Nanotechnologies offer the potential to help address a number of these challenges leading to an eco-efficient European economy, which competes effectively with other world regions.
