NanoStruc 2014 Conference            

Many thanks  to all participants, Sponsors, Supports, Scientific  and Organising Committees  for a very successful conference

Conference Dates:  20-21 May 2014

Location: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Calle de Serrano 123, 28006, Madrid, Spain


Conference Theme:   Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies – Recent Advances towards Nanoproducts and Applications

The nanoparticles and nanocomposites have a wide range of applications in various fields such as medicine, textiles, cosmetics, agriculture, optics, food packaging, optoelectronic devices, semiconductor devices, aerospace, automotive, construction and catalysis. Advancements in the nanotechnology industry promise to offer improvements in capabilities across a spectrum of applications. This is of immense strategic importance to the high performance sector which has historically leveraged technological advances in materials.

The purpose of The 2nd International Conference on Structural Nano Composites (NANOSTRUC 2014) is to promote activities in various areas of materials and structures by providing a forum for exchange of ideas, presentation of technical achievements and discussion of future directions. NANOSTRUC brings together an international community of experts to discuss the state-of-the-art, new research results, perspectives of future developments, and innovative applications relevant to  structural materials, engineering structures, nanocomposites, modelling  and simulations, and their  related application areas.

We look forward to meet and  welcome you at Madrid.

Yours sincerely,

Raquel Verdejo & James Njuguna

Established in 2005 the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) is the only global industry-focused trade association for nanotechnologies. With branches across Europe and the head office in Brussels, NIA collaborates with regulators and stakeholders on the national, European and international levels so as to secure a publicly and regulatory supportive environment for the continuing advancement and establishment of nanotechnologies. NIA’s capacity to operate globally places it and its Members in a unique position to sustainably advance the commercial interests of the nanotechnology industries.NIA’s membership consists of both established and up-and-coming companies from a wide variety of industrial sectors. Members of the NIA benefit from it acting on their behalf in globally influential fora, such as the OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials and ISO Technical Committee on Nanotechnologies TC 229, and by receiving science- and technology-based expertise through exclusive documents, alerts and articles about contemporary nano developments and events.
