Nanotech Northern Europe (NTNE), the region’s largest nanotechnology event, is organised in Helsinki, Finland on 27-29 March 2007.

The key themes of NTNE2007 are application driven, focusing on nanoelectronics and photonics solutions; nanomaterials and nanoparticles for e.g. diagnostics and biomaterials; and safety of nanotechnology products. In addition, leading instrument and tool manufacturers will showcase the latest developments in measurement equipment and software solutions.

Organised by the Finnish nanotechnology consultancy and seed capital firm Spinverse Consulting, Nanotech Northern Europe provides a common forum for researchers, companies, investors, funding agencies and service providers such as intellectual property rights (IPR) and commercialisation experts. As in 2006, partnering is the driving force of the 2007 event as well. Reaching commercial breakthroughs requires co-operation and strong partnerships extending across scientific disciplines and industry borders.

NTNE2007 is held in parallel with ChemBio Finland 07, combining the Northern Europe’s largest nanotechnology event with the region's most significant event in the field of biotechnology and chemistry. This provides exciting new synergies between these truly interdisciplinary fields and it is expected to attract close to 10,000 visitors.

Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) June 28, 2006 -- NTNE 2007 continues to build on the success of previous NTNE events. In 2006, attendance increased to over 650 experts from 25 countries. The number of exhibiting companies and organisations more than doubled from the previous year to over 100 companies.

The success of NTNE2006 was strongly based on its ability to combine world-leading research to business development and strategy. The congress included presentations from more than 80 top scientists and representatives of leading innovative companies, as well as funding agencies and investors.

The main event partners of NTNE2006 were Nokia, the Nordic Innovation Center, Tekes, Veeco Instruments, FEI Company and Obducat.

Keynote speakers at past NTNE events include respected scientists such as Nobel Laureate Alan J. Heeger, and Sumio Iijima, one of the field’s pioneers and a prospective future Nobel price winner as well.

Prominent corporate speakers have included representatives of large international companies such as Bob Iannucci, head of Nokia Research Center, and Jukka Kivinen, Vice President of UPM New Ventures.
