On 22 June 2021, from 4 to 6:30 pm, the SCN2 (Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology) will celebrate the second edition of the event 'Nanotechnology and Industry for PhD researchers'.
The aim of the event is to talk about nanotechnology applied to the field of industry and business. This year the event counts with the participation of three spin-offs from ICN2, ICMAB and IMB-CNM: InBrain Neuroelectronics, Nanomol Technologies and Energiot, who will explain us their process of technology transfer.
Nowadays, Nanoscience has arisen as one of the most applicable and innovative ways of designing new technologies. Nevertheless, the gap between basic research and industrial development is still an issue of concern. In this webinar, we will get insights on how research and different industrial profiles take profit from Nanotechnology, in order to generate useful products that will eventually reach the customer.
Although the generation of applicable engines is one of the main objectives that lead research, basic nano-scientists aren’t usually familiar with the procedures that are required for transferring their discoveries from the laboratory to the customer. Questions like specific policies for industrial development of nanotechnological products, or the way industries see the nanotechnologies that are actually being commercialized, are of huge relevance for researchers’ formation, and will be addressed on this webinar.
In this webinar, we will learn about how Nanotechnology is approached by spin off creators and industrial research teams, from the point of view of professionals with scientific formation in academia, that are working on the commercialization and industrialization of products based on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. We will review some professional profiles often unknown by academic researchers, which are of huge relevance in the transition between academia and industry.
This event is also intended to offer a place for discussion, including a round table debate in which the aspects of research and industrial development of nanotechnologies, during and after the PhD, will be assessed. Open questions on moving from the academic research to industry will also be discussed.
