The fifth edition of the AIN Workshop (Industrial Applications in Nanotechnology), sponsored by NANOARACAT, ICN, INA and Centro Tecnológico LEITAT, will be held on 24th October 2011.

On October 24th 2011, the 5th edition of the AIN Workshop (Industrial Applications in Nanotechnology) will be held at Casa Llotja de Mar in Barcelona. The workshop brings together companies and research institutes focused on future applications of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The event is organised by NANOARACAT together with the Centro Tecnológico LEITAT and is supported by the Chamber of Commerce of Barcelona.

During the recent years Nanotechnology has generated high expectations in scientific, technological and business spheres. It has become of strategic importance, making possible the design and creation of new materials, devices and systems, and allowing new solutions, products and applications to reach society. It has the potential to launch an industrial revolution, responding to many current social and economic needs, providing clear benefits in many areas.

With the goal of promoting this technological, economic and social advancements, both the Catalan and Aragon Autonomous Communities, signed the collaborative contract NANOARACAT in 2006, in order to foster a series of R&D actions within the nanoscience and nanotechnology fields to stimulate research, collaboration and transfer of knowledge amongst the academic and industrial sectors.

Since 2007, NANOARACAT, together with the Centro Tecnológico LEITAT and with the support of the Chamber of Commerce of Barceelona, organises the annual Workshop on Industrial Applications in Nanotechnology (AIN), which year after year has taken place at the historic Casa Llotja de Mar in Barcelona. In this event companies from both regions and different industrial sectors showcase their various industrial applications in nanotechnoligy and facilitate collaboration between industry research, and technologic centres.
