07 November 2013

The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network , one of the UK’s primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, is pleased to announce details of its annual one-day conference, on November 19 at Nottingham Trent University, to discuss the latest UK developments in nanofibres, nanocomposites and existing and emerging applications, hosted by Nottingham Trent University.

Nanofibres to Nanocomposites III is the third annual conference which reflects the growing interest in nanofibres to deliver new and innovative nanofibre based products. This event will be of interest to all those who want to learn about the production and use of nanofibres in a wide range of applications and to meet with leading UK experts from different market sectors and academia in the nanofibres and nanocomposites areas.

Dr Barry Park, Theme Manager at the NanoKTN will introduce the programme which includes a keynote from Elmarco on the Commercialisation of Nanofibres, followed by speakers from The Electrospinning Company, Nottingham Trent University, Puridify, Oxford Biomaterials, Revolution Fibres, Nanoforce and the University of Surrey.

Dr Barry Park, Theme Manager at the NanoKTN comments, "Commercial nanofibre based products have now begun to reach the market based on electrospinning and other production methods. Our latest event will provide further insight into the new world of nanofibres and nanocomposite products and applications. We hope the conference will provide a great opportunity for networking for both academics and industry, and to explore collaborative partnerships to encourage further nanofibre commercialisation.”

Complementing the conference programme will be a table-top exhibition, academic posters, and an optional tour of Nottingham Trent University’s electrospinning facilities.
