The nano tech Executive Committee (Chairman: Osaka University Professor, Tomoji Kawai) will host "nano tech 2014" the 13th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference, for three days from January 29 to 31, 2014 at Tokyo Big Sight. This marks the 13th installment of the event, with a total of 520 companies and organizations (total of 736 booths) from 20 countries and regions scheduled to exhibit. (As of December 6, 2013)
Concurrent Events: InterAqua, ASTEC, SURTECH, neo functional material, Printable Electronics, enex, Smart Energy Japan
This year's highlight is a special symposium focusing on ‘Life & Green Nanotechnology’. The "life" segment will feature lectures on topics such as 'Regenerative Medicine', 'Personalized Medicine', and 'Imaging', discussing the latest life-science research findings which are moving closer to practical applications thanks to nanotechnology. The dominant theme for the ‘green’ segment will be 'Hydrogen', which is garnering increasing interest as the ultimate source of renewable energy. The program will explore the possibilities of the age of a ‘hydrogen society’ which will bring with it fuel cell vehicles and filling stations, as well as residential-use fuel cells for housing.
