Topics

The Conference aims to illustrate how Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) principles should guide the development of nanotechnologies and Key Enabling Technologies related innovations , answering the demand for an innovation safe and responsive to societal challenges and needs.

The program, with oral and poster presentations, will cover topics of great relevance, of interest to a broad range of industrial sectors. Sessions will include:

  • HEALTHCARE & MEDICAL DEVICES

    Diagnosis and treatment of degenerative and cognitive diseases; Cancer therapies; Biophotonics; Monitoring and sensing devices

  • BIO-INSPIRED AND BIO-BASED TECHNOLOGIES

    Environmentally friendly processes and products; Energy storage, saving and production; Bio-inspired materials; Catalysts.

  • SMART MANUFACTURING & ROBOTICS

    Nanofabrication: processes and production; Additive manufacturing; Sensing and Actuation; Automation; Human-machine interfaces; Soft robotics; Characterization and measurements.

  • AEROSPACE RELATED APPLICATIONS

    Micro-nano materials and systems for space applications and their spill over on every day products.

  • MATERIALS & GRAPHENE–BASED INNOVATION

    Structural and functional materials for performances driven innovation; Multifunctional, light weight, composite materials; Graphene and 2D materials for electronics, energy and composites.

  • KETs FOR THE MADE in ITALY

    Food packaging (e.g. intelligent, active, biodegradable packaging); Anti counterfeiting; Cultural heritage: materials based solutions for protection, preservation and restoration.

Common aspects for technology transfer, such as regulation, ethical and societal impacts, open innovation, financing, patents, start-ups will also be part of the programme. A special attention will be given to initiative supporting  SMEs participation in cooperative projects and build partnerships.
