NanoMed North was one of the exhibitors at last week’s NanoForum in Stockholm. NanoForum is arranged by SwedNanoTech which is a nanotechnology network for both academia and industry in Sweden.
The “godfather” of nanotechnology; Eric Drexler was one of the keynote speakers and he gave a fascinating talk about advanced productive nanosystems. These nanosystems (nanoscale machinery) will according to Drexler have a large impact on for example life science industry in the future. If you want to know more about Eric Drexler´s work go to e-drexler.com.
“The Nanotechnology company of the year – award” was presented at NanoForum. The award is handed out to a young, innovative Swedish nanotechnology company. This year’s nominees were: Cline Scientific, Exeger, Insplorin, Nanexa and Promimic. The award went to Exeger for their Dye-sensitized solar cells.
We had a lot of visitors at the NanoMed North stand and we give a warm welcome to our new members that signed up at NanoForum.
