Send in your abstract for a poster and poster pitch during the international MicroNanoConference 2020
The international MicroNanoConference 2020 focuses on Dutch and international businesses, universities and research centers. The conference offers an opportunity to bring these areas together to stimulate cooperation, knowledge and innovation.
The conference themes have been carefully selected and are in line with the social and economic challenges and missions determined by the Dutch government.
Health & Life science
Agro & Food
Sustainability & Energy
Manufacturing & Engineering
These topics are not only applicable to Dutch society, but worldwide. By exchanging ideas and knowledge internationally, we work together to turn the social and economic challenges that we all have into opportunities with the ultimate goal of realizing them.
On 3 and 4 December the iMNC2020 will be hosted completely online. With keynote speakers, exhibitors and poster pitches in online meeting rooms. We have set up an online platform where you can present your poster in PDF and with a short video pitch. Also, in the main program poster sessions will be organised where you can give a 3-minute poster pitch and discuss questions with the attendees.
Please note, for iMNC2020, no abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation. You will be asked to present a poster pitch in a small group of presenters in the same main theme.
Abstract submission deadline
Friday October 30th, 2020 17:00 hours. (GMT+1 Amsterdam)
Would you like to submit an abstract, think of research and/or applied technologies. Below some examples of subjects, most are written from the point of view of researchers.
Are you working in industry or are you an end-user, send in an abstract with the solutions that you have created for a problem or what your needs are from researchers or from the market. Abstracts from all points of view are welcome!
Examples of subjects:
1. How can nanotechnology contribute to increasing the efficiency of solar cells?
2. How can nanotechnology improve battery technologies?
3. How can nano / micro sensors contribute to food waste reduction?
4. What is needed to make large-scale production of micro and nanodevices possible at the lowest possible costs?
5. How can Organ-on-a-chip technology contribute to the development of personalized medicines?
6. How can micro- and nanotechnology contribute to improvements in healthcare through better and faster analysis, or through better treatment processes?
7. How can micro- / nanotechnology contribute to sustainability, and the need for (clean) energy, and clean water, a clean environment?
8. How do you bring micro- and nano-based materials and devices from a few samples in a research lab to serial production in industry? Which design and manufacturing principles are needed for this?
9. We can embed micro- and nano-based functions in large numbers and in many modern products and systems. What does that mean at system level? Are there disadvantages, for example due to sustainability and recycling?
10. How do you successfully grow a crop with as little waste as possible and which sensors are needed for this?
