About the event

Nanotechnology Crossing Borders event

The Nanotechnology Crossing Borders symposia are organized by Hasselt University, TNO, Brightlands Materials Center and Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. It’s an event where science meets industry and is organized every year in September.

We encourage students from universities and universities of applied sciences, and PhD researchers to present their work in form of a poster. We accept all posters which present research projects related to nanomaterials/nanotechnology.

An international jury will select the three best posters for a poster award of 250 € (1st place), 150 € (2nd place) and 100 € (3rd place). Participation is free of charge. Nonetheless, registration is required. Last year, more than 150 students, university researchers and industrial researchers participated in the symposium.
