11th NanoTrust Conference

Advanced Materials and Circular Economy

The 11th Nanotrust Conference is organized by the Institute for Technology Assessment (ITA) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and offers an exciting, all-day program on the topic "Advanced Materials and Circular Economy". This year's conference will be held in cooperation with King Mongkut´s University of Technology (KMUTT) from Thailand. Please note that this year's conference will be held in English.

Date: 30. Oktober 2018, 09:00 bis 17:00 Uhr
Venue: ITA – Institute of Technology Assessment, Apostelgasse 23, 1030 Vienna

Registration has been closed by 1.10.2018, in case of urgent matters please contact us via tamail [@] oeaw.ac.at -- thank you!

The main theme of this year’s event is advanced materials and circular economy. We seek to further promote contact between Austrian and Thai research institutions which was established within the framework of the Asian Nanoforum (ANF) and followed up by a visit of the ITA at KMUTT facilities in Bangkok in August 2017. The conference offers the opportunity to exchange the results of the scientific research on the subject of sustainable development of new technologies. We wish to discuss issues regarding innovation, safety and sustainability to identify common fields of interest for further joint activities, both scientific and educational in nature.
