at the interface of nanotechnology and life sciences

Workshop Fundamentals of Nanotechnology

Once a year Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the University of Twente organize the 3-day workshop Fundamentals of Nanotechnology.

The next edition of the course is planned for January 2022

Please visit the workshop website regularly for the most recent information.

15 editions of this workshop have been organized already and about 500 people have participated this workshop before you.

This course provides a first introduction with the complete scope of what nanotechnology is about. The workshop is set up for graduate students (both MSc and PhD) and postdoctoral fellows with a training in nanotechnology, electrical engineering, applied physics, chemical or biomedical engineering or any other applied science and who are starting to work or are currently working in the field of nanotechnology.

In this 3-day workshop we will offer you lectures on the basics of nanotechnology, and subjects related to the nanotechnology research done at the MESA+ Institute, organized along the 3 application areas: Health, ICT and Sustainability. Additionally lectures on technology venturing, societal embedding and risk assessment are included.  Unfortunately this time there will be no lab-tours. The third day is more focused on how nanotechnology is entering the market. A number of companies will present themselves and discuss how they translated results from nanotechnology research into business.
