Basel is the centre of nanoscience

Basel – The Swiss NanoConvention is taking place on Thursday and Friday at the Congress Center Basel. Over 600 researchers will come together to exchange ideas on topics ranging from basic research to practical application.

International scientists from the field of nanoscience, researchers from other fields and representatives from industry and politics will gather at the Swiss NanoConvention (SNC). According to a statement from the University of Basel, one of the conference’s aims is to encourage contacts between science and industry.

An example of this is the development of a quantum computer, which will be the subject of one of the presentations held during the conference. The use of solar energy, non-stick coatings for surfaces and even natural machines in human cells are also on the agenda. Scientific topics such as quantum technology, sensors and nanoscience for energy will also be addressed.

This is the second time the Swiss NanoConvention has been held in Basel since 2013. The University of Basel has made a significant contribution to Switzerland’s current status as one of the leading countries in nanoscience. Basel holds the leading role at the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) "Nanoscale Science".
