ICN2 sponsors a Session about Nanodevices for Societal Challenges during the TNT2014

Four ICN2 Group Leaders will introduce the main research areas of the Severo Ochoa Program related with ICT, Energy, Biosensors and Theory. Four Keynote speakers will give their point of view on each research area.

ICN2 is involved in the major events about nanoscience, like the Trends in NanoTechnology (TNT) Congress celebrated in Barcelona from October 27-31. ICN2 sponsors a Session about "Nanodevices for Societal Challenges" on Wednesday 29th. It is an opportunity to celebrate the Severo Ochoa accreditation in the context of a first-line international event.

Four ICN2 Group Leaders will introduce, together with ICN2 Director Prof. Pablo Ordejón, the main research areas of the Severo Ochoa Program related with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Energy, Biosensors and Theory. Four Keynote speakers will give their point of view on each research area.
