The EuroNanoForum 2015 conference (ENF 2015) takes place on 10-12 June 2015 in Riga, in Radisson Blu Latvija. The event is organised under the auspices of the Latvian presidency of the European Union, in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, and has received funding from the European Union.
European competitiveness and jobs are depending on strengthening European manufacturing capabilities by providing essential technology building blocks in the form of high value-added products and their manufacturing processes in strategic European value chains. The aim of the conference is to contribute to these efforts of strengthening European competitiveness and supporting the renewal of its manufacturing industries.
ENF2015 will review the status of European technology development in nanotechnologies and advanced materials industries, discussing the latest progress in nanoscience and nanotechnologies, and their contribution to innovation in manufacturing across all industrial sectors.
In addition, framework conditions like education, standardisation, regulations, IPR and safety issues, as well as entrepreneurship and industrial policy will be discussed. The program also features sessions on finance and funding through European and national programs, in particular Horizon 2020, regional and public-private partnership initiatives.
The conference builds on the agendas set by previous conferences and will also review the first activities launched under H2020 and provide feedback for the coming calls.
The EuroNanoForum biannual series of conferences has grown since 2003 into the most significant European forum in its field for discussions amongst scientists, industrialists and policy makers, offering vast opportunities for networking with key decision makers.
