Potential Sponsors 2017

Sponsoring and Exhibitions For further details concerning potential sponsorship opportunities at NanoteC, please contact us by email (chris.ewels@cnrs-imn.fr).

The conference will host typically 100 delegates, all active researchers in the field of carbon based nanotechnology. This will provide an excellent opportunity to raise awareness amongst the research community of your products and expertise.

Exhibition space will be available next to the area used for posters, which will be available for viewing throughout the conference. There will also be a timetabled poster session.

The following facilities are available for industrial sponsors:

- Exhibition Space including one free non-residential registration and inclusion of a corporate insert in all attendees registration packs.

- Poster Prize: In addition it is possible to sponsor keynote lectures, and the reception offered during the poster sessions. If you have other particular needs, ideas or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Past NanoteCs

NanoteC is one of the longest running series of international nanoscale carbon conferences in Europe (since 1998). It brings together scientists working with nanoscale carbon materials: nanotubes, graphene, diamond- and fullerene-related nanostructures. While each of these materials attracts its own dedicated community of researchers, NanoteC draws on common themes and allows researchers to share insight into this unique element at the nanoscale.

Elemental carbon shows remarkable variety in properties via simple covalent bonding, however other systems (for example containing nitrogen or metals) are becoming important and provide alternative components with unique mechanical and electronic properties. Nanotechnology requires an understanding of these materials on an atomic level and this will be the central theme.

NanoteC took place at Trinity College Dublin in 2016.

Sponsoring and Exhibitions 2016

For further details concerning potential sponsorship opportunities at NanoteC, please contact us by email. The conference will host typically 130 delegates, all active researchers in the field of carbon based nanotechnology. This will provide an excellent opportunity to raise awareness amongst the research community of your products and expertise.

NanoteC15 will be held at Corpus Christi College Oxford, UK. There are good connections to all London airports, Birmingham airport and the Eurostar.

The NanoteC conferences are renowned for their relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with emphasis on discussion and participation. We endeavour to achieve as much student participation as possible, and we anticipate that the keynote talks will be strongly influential on the next generation of nanotechnology scientists.
