Nanotechnology for Sustainable Economy - European and International Forum on Nanotechnology
From 02 June 2009 To 04 June 2009
EuroNanoForum 2009 was the fourth conference of a set of international nanotechnology conferences organized within the framework of national Presidencies of the European Union.
Focusing on ?Nanotechnology for sustainable economy?, EuroNanoForum 2009 addressed the contribution and challenges of nanotechnology research for a sustainable development of European industry and society, such as the need for reduction in carbon emissions and fossil fuels dependence, the substantial increase in energy demand, pollution control, clean water management and sustainable quality of life of the European citizen, as well as material production sustainability and efficiency. In this respect, nanotechnology presents many opportunities and challenges that have to be analysed at international level through a safe, responsible and integrated approach, as first presented by the ENF2003 conference.
