SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015 
March 09, 2015

A forum for researchers, industry, and regulators on research findings on the interface between nanotechnology and sustainability.


 SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO
Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015

The SUN-SNO-GUIDENANO Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015 is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss research findings on the interface between nanotechnology and sustainability.

Our view of sustainability includes not only its environmental dimensions, but also the societal and economic ones. The conference program will address the critical aspects of sustainable nanotechnology such as life cycle thinking; environmental release and fate of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) ; environmental, occupational and consumer exposure to ENMs; environmental and human health impacts of ENMs; safe production, handling and disposal of ENMs; regulatory and industrial decision support for sustainable nanotechnology; nanotechnology applications for sustainability; societal implications of nanotechnology; curriculum and training for sustainable nanotechnology.

The conference will be held from 9-11 March 2015 in Venice, Italy. It is being jointly organized by the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO), a USA based non-profit organization dedicated to advancing sustainable nanotechnology, and two large EU FP7 nanosafety projects SUN and GUIDENANO. Perspectives on the implications and applications of nanotechnology will be provided by leading experts in EU and USA. We also hope to foster new multi-sector collaborations in nanotechnology.

NanotechItaly 2014 will showcase how nanotechnologies, together with the other KETs, can sustain a Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) assuring a competitive advantages to a variety of industries, relevant to EU and National economy.

The seventh edition topics of NanotechItaly2014 are:

HEALTHCARE & WELLBEING

  • Biomedical engineering: medical devices, robotics, biomaterials, scaffolding, bio-nano interfaces and coatings (e.g. antibacterial), bionano sensors
  • Nanomedicine for advanced medical devices and treatments: diagnostic and and drug delivery
  • Cognitive diseases: biosystems and biomaterials, monitoring and sensing devices (e.g. MEM-devices), imaging, modelling approaches
  • Active Assisted Living (AAL)technologies for assistance, physical prevention, rehabilitation and social inclusion, fixed and mobile (werable) sensors, human machine interfaces, robotics.

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY AND RAW MATERIALS

  • Substitution of critical raw materials
  • Functional and structural materials, thin films for characteristics/performances driven innovation (e.g. in transportation, energy, textiles, packaging, etc.)

SMART MANUFACTURING

  • Nanomaterials and nanofabrication for automation/mechatronics
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Metrology: analysis, traceability and characterization

BIO-BASED AND BIO-INSPIRED INDUSTRY

  • Bio-specialities, bio-based materials, bio fuels, chemicals and other bio-based products

SPACE RELATED APPLICATIONS

  • Micro-nano materials and systems
  • Detectors, energy harvesting systems, RF devices, robotics, miniaturized satellites
  • Space applications and their spill over on civilian products
