NanoSeminars

The NanoSeminars were established to provide a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas, based around a lecture by a world-class invited researcher.

The ICN2 brings to you three thematic series:

  • Nano in Medicine & Health
  • Nano in Physics
  • Nano in Chemistry and Materials

The series about Medicine & Health is a joint initiative between the Nanomedicine Lab at the University of Manchester and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2).

Through the NanoSeminars we intend to facilitate active participation and lively discussions on topics which are of common interest to the lectures, the attendees and the different institutions involved. In each event the main lecture by the guest scientist will be preceded by a short presentation related to the topic given by a junior researcher. This combination will give younger scientists the opportunity to gain visibility and will also contribute to articulate the discussion on the topic addressed in the lecture.

We are delighted to share with you these exciting events and get you involved. Learn below about the upcoming NanoSeminars and watch the recorded videos of the lectures (which are published shortly after the event is held).
