Program – Nanotechnology Crossing Borders 2022

Nanotechnology Crossing Borders 2022

During this year’s Nanotechnology Crossing Borders symposium, we will focus on several application areas of nanomaterials and nanostructured processes that contribute to the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy; and provide solutions in the biomedical sector: Antimicrobial coatings, Photoelectrochemical processes, Biotechnology, “Nanomaterials and Coatings for Energy Efficiency”, Membrane Separation and Innovative Reactors.
