NanoIsrael 2014, the 4th international conference & exhibition, which will be held on March 24th-25th , at the Tel–Aviv David Intercontinental Hotel, Israel, will focus this year on innovations and business opportunities in the fields of medicine, materials, defence, electronics, photonics and energy.
The event is expected to draw over 1,000 participants from Israel and around the world, including Nano related companies, venture capital experts, institutional and organizational investors, regulators, government decision makers, leading scientists and researchers.
"Israel is recognized as a centre for innovation and research in Nanotechnology, with documented achievements across many business sectors such as energy, water and the environment, aerospace and defense, medicine and biotechnology, electronics and communications," says Nava Swersky Sofer, the conference co–chair. "Top companies and researchers from around the world will come to Israel to share their knowledge. The best of Israel’s achievements in science and business will be presented and potential investors and business partners will attend the event to seek collaborations.”
Prof Uri Sivan of the Technion, renowned scientist and the first head of the Russell Berry Nanotechnology Centre at the Technion, is chairing the scientific committee this year, and Rafi Koriat of INNI is the third co-chair.
"We expect a great turnout, as we have had in previous conferences. At the first conference, we had a ratio of 80:20 between academia and industry and slowly but surely this is moving towards the applied arena while keeping the scientific aspects at the highest level and the next generation of developed applications," concludes Swersky Sofer.
NanoIsrael 2014 is held in cooperation with the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) and the nanotechnology centers at Israeli universities, and is supported by the Ministry of Trade & Industry, the Foreign Ministry, key companies, universities and organizations from Israel and abroad.
