New date of the 9th NRW Nano Conference:

21-22 April 2021

9th NRW Nano Conference: Good personal contacts – as usual, but at an unusual date

Organizers are postponing the 9th NRW Nano Conference until 21-22 April 2021, in order to offer a familiar, unique and personal atmosphere of exchange. Venue remains the Messe und Congress Centrum Halle Münsterland.

The NRW Nano-Conference is characterized not only by the presentations of top-class international speakers, but above all by the interdisciplinary exchange on current trends and developments in the field of advanced materials, nanotechnologies and their wide range of application fields. With the new date in spring 2021, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Cluster NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonics.NRW (NMWP.NRW) and the Economic Development Agency Münster are ensuring that this exchange can continue to take place as intensive and as personal as usual.

Especially the extensive accompanying exhibition of companies and (research) institutions as well as the poster exhibition with more than 120 posters are gladly used for intensive networking by the participants. The organisers are responding to this wish of the guests by postponing the conference extremely early. Companies that had the conference prior the corona pandemic on their calendar as a fixed date, as well as participants who would like to submit a scientific contribution to the conference in the form of a lecture or poster, benefit from the improved planning for the new date in April 2021.

The 9th NRW Nano Conference

More than 600 experts are expected to attend the 9th NRW Nano-Conference for an interdisciplinary exchange about current trends and solutions in the field of new materials and nanotechnologies. In addition to lectures by top-class, international speakers from business, science and politics, a large poster exhibition and numerous topic sessions provide insights into current research and development. An extensive accompanying exhibition also provides a good overview of new products, processes and services that will form the basis for the innovative products of tomorrow.

In addition to many “classic” materials topics, quantum technologies and battery cell research are among the new topics, with an open call for presentations and posters taking place again in autumn 2020.

Young scientists will again play a special role at the upcoming conference. As part of the Young Academics Programme, students with the best posters receive the Best Poster Award.
