The scientific community is progressively experiencing a greater interest in environmentally friendly energy generation technologies, and their suitable applications, such is the case of hydrogen fuel cells applied to aeronautics.
The Institute of Nanotechnology, global leaders in nanotechnology information services, is organising its second annual nanomedicine conference and exhibition 'Investing in Medical Nanotechnology II', which will showcase the latest developments in nanomedicine and potential routes to financing.
The EU funded NanoforumEULA project just released the report of a fact finding mission visiting Mexico's nanotechnology community including research organizations, companies and government bodies, held end of August this year.
India and the executive arm of the European Union will set up a corpus fund of 10 million euros (14.7 million dollars) for research in nanotechnology, a top European Commission official said Wednesday.
Scientists in Maryland are reporting an important advance toward the long-sought goal of industrial-scale fabrication of nanowire-based devices like ultra-sensitive sensors, light emitting diodes, and transistors for inexpensive, high-performance electronics products.
The University of Texas at San Antonio and the University of Texas at Austin are two of five research universities in a nationwide consortium awarded $1.4 million from the National Science Foundation. The Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Team grant will enable researchers to explore ways to concentrate optical energy on a scale of nanometers and develop means to control optical energy for applications in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
In a newly announced global Alliance for Nanosystems VLSI (very-large-scale integration), researchers at Caltech's Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI) in Pasadena, California, and at the Laboratoire d'Electronique et de Technologie de l'Information-Micro- and Nano-Technologies (CEA/LETI-MINATEC) in Grenoble, France, are working together to take the pursuit of Feynman's vision to an entirely new level.
ENTER3, the 3rd festival for arts, sciences and technologies will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from November 8-11, 2007. ENTER is part of the annual Week of Science and Technology, the project of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The Universidad Autonoma de Madrid has tested a new protection technique that consists of the electrodeposition of a conductive polymer (polypyrrole) over the surface of a material like copper that is easily oxidized.
A consortium of Piedmont Triad institutions has been awarded a $100,000 planning grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to establish the state's first Center of Innovation, focusing on the emerging field of nanobiotechnology.
What do Americans know about nanotechnology-the technology that promises to ignite the next Industrial Revolution? According to polls, the answer is not much. A federally-supported national network of U.S. scientists, museum professionals, and educators is working to change that.
