The International MicroNanoConference brings together science and industry to showcase how micro- and nanotechnology help addressing our societal challenges: Nano4Society. Like every year, we will focus on four sub-themes:
- Health & Life science
- Agro & Food
- Sustainability & Energy
- Manufacturing & Engineering
And as a special edition this year: Public Private Collaborations – Lessons learnt in times of pandemic collaboration: How to involve SME’s and address their interests.
As a warm-up, we will start with 5 pre-meetings leading up to iMNC2020. The first pre-meeting is a session on lessons learnt from public-private collaboration in times of a pandemic crisis. During the Corona crisis, SME’s, large industry and scientists from research institutes worked together to find solutions for societal and medical problems. What lessons can we learn from these collaborations? The keynotes, who will be interviewed for a Q&A after their talk by Prof Maarten Honing will discuss their own experience and their vision on future collaborations.
Abstract submission open
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.
This year, no abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation in the main tracks. You will be asked to present a poster pitch in a small group of presenters in the same main theme. In the main program poster sessions will be organized where you can give a 3-minute poster pitch and discuss questions with the attendees. It is possible to play a video or animation next to your abstract in PDF. The deadline for abstract submission is October 30, 17:00 (GMT+1 Amsterdam)
With the program coming together in the coming weeks, the pre-events starting end of September you can now register and not miss any of these interesting events. All pre-meeting sessions will be recorded and shown during the iMNC2020.
Register 1 ticket for a single price and attend all meetings or a selection. You can join the matchmaking and send in your abstract for iMNC2020 on December 3 and 4. Meet with our exhibitors, and get updates from the field of micro- and nanotechnology.
