The ICPC NanoNet region reports are now available. These are the second in a set of four annual reports on N&N in the following regions:Africa, The Caribbean, The Pacific, Asia (East) and Asia (West), Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America, Mediterranean Partner Countries and Western Balkan Countries.
These reports provide an update on the N&N activities in the ICPCs and highlight areas and topics for collaboration. New data has also been made available regarding N&N publications in various industrial sectors. Furthermore, the latest regional initiatives, new developments in S&T agreements and funding programmes, as well as profiles of the main research centres with their specialised areas of interest have been included. The reports are available to all registered members.
