An invitation to a unique series of free online event.
Dates: 6 December 2010, 12.45-14.30 GMT (13.45-15.30 CET) and 20 December, 9.30-11.15 GMT (10.30-12.15 CET)
The ICPC-NanoNet project stimulates global networking in nanoscience and nanotechnology. This online workshop on Nanotechnology for Solar Energy enables nanoscientists working in this field to meet and find out about each others expertise, infrastructure and research interests. The invited speakers include Prof Dr Teketel Yohannes Anshebo, University of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Prof. Dr Aldo Di Carlo, Associate Professor,Univ. of Rome “Tor Vergata”, Italy, Prof. Dr Carlo Taliani, ISMN-CNR Bologna Division, Bologna, Italy and Dr. Nadia Camaioni, Istituto CNR-ISOF, Bologna, Italy. The prospective audience consists of nanoscientists specialising in solar energy from Europe and International Cooperation Partner Countries to the EU (emerging economies and developing countries). Participation is free for registered users of the ICPC-NanoNet website (sign up free of charge).
