About the Conference

This conference is intended to celebrate the successes of twelve years of NIM and to look into the future of nanosciences. To this end we invite leading protagonists of all research areas of NIM as speakers. In addition, successful NIM alumni will have their say. Moreover, we will organize a poster session for PhD students. In a technology transfer session, we want to provide a forum for NIM spin‐off companies. A panel discussion “quo vadis nanoscience” with well‐known opinion leaders is planned for the public. The event will be complemented by a boat tour with conference dinner on the picturesque lake Starnberger See.
