On behalf of CZELO (Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation), CzechInvest (the Investment and Business Development Agency of the Czech Republic) and under the auspices of the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the European Union, we would like to invite you to the workshop “Czech is Nano”.
Main aim of this event is to provide an overview of the nanotechnology sector in the Czech Republic with several case studies of successful companies with high international profile (Contipro, IQ Structures, Pardam) and to offer a networking platform to establish closer contacts between various parts of the nanotechnology field in the European Union. Apart from the introduction, the topics will cover the areas of nanomedicine, 3D nanoprinting, and nanostructures for energy storage or security measures.
