NANOTECH DUBAI 2013 brings together leading scientists, researchers, engineers, practitioners, technology developers and policy makers in nanotechnology to exchange information on their latest research progress and innovation. Participants from the top international academic, government and private industry labs of different disciplines participate in NANOTECH DUBAI 2013 to identify new technology trends, development tools, product opportunities, R&D collaborations, and commercialization partners. It is an excellent event for students to meet and discuss with lead researchers. The conference provides an unprecedented opportunity to discover innovation in the area of nanotechnology and new business opportunities. It’s among the most important events in terms of international regulatory policies and it’s opened to the participation of private companies. It’s a unique venue for companies to promote equipment and technology.
The conference is organized by SETCOR in collaboration with the American University of Sharjah – UAE.
The conference covers all frontier topics in nanotechnology including:
