Nano Bugle

A window into applied science supported by INL

ImagineNano – Connecting Nano-industry and Nano-science

The first edition of ImagineNano  was held from the 11th to the 14th of April in the North of Spain, Bilbao. Organized by Phantoms Foundation, CIC nanoGUNE, DIPC and the University of Basque Country, the event was visited by more than 1500 participants from more than 35 different countries, thus being considered as the largest 2011 European Event in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology

The event was made up of 5 international conferences with more than 250 experts in nanotechnology and nanosciences including 2 Novel and 3 Príncipe de Asturias Awards winners. These conferences covered different hot topics and trends on nanosciencies such as Graphene, Photonics, Energy, High Performance Computing, Optics, etc.

The event began with Dr Konstantin Novoselov, the latest winner of the Novel Prize in Physics and actually working at the Manchester University. He gave a speech entitled “Materials in the flatland” about the short and medium term potential and impact of nanomaterials. Also, Dr. Wolfgang Bosch, Director of the INFSO/FET Unit, gave a presentation about the European Union’s integration of scientific resources and infraestructures with the aim of increasing European innovation to the highest levels.

ImagineNano also had a huge exhibition area with more than 130 booths where companies, technological centres and Universities provided visitors with an outlook of the most innovative trends, projects and products in various fields of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology.

The INL (International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory) was one of the most visited booths at the exhibition where the visitors received information about the objectives, structure and potential for research and industrial collaboration of the laboratory as well as the internationally recognized research community that the INL offers in the nanotechnology area.
