The Second Nanotechnology International Forum
October 6 – 8, 2009, Moscow, Central Exhibition Complex “Expocentre”
The First Nanotechnology International Forum took place in Moscow in December, 2008. More than 9000 people attended the Forum. Almost 1400 representatives of the world nanoindustry, state authorities, business and science communities from 33 countries made their presentations and speeches. The exhibition of nanotechnology developments, represented by projects from over 309 Russian and international companies and organizations was of the utmost interest.
The Forum has become an international platform for communication between science and business, a tool of commercialization of scientific ideas and market promotion of nanoindustry production.
Developing nanotechnology industry in Russia is the field with unique opportunities to implement progressive ideas and ambitious investment projects. According to the programme, indicated in the Strategy of RUSNANO activity, by 2015 the sales volume of all Russian nanoindustry production should reach €19 billion, with an export volume of almost €4 billion. These are truly gigantic figures, comparable with the current volume of the entire innovation industry of the country.
The forthcoming Second Nanotechnology International Forum in October will become another step on the way to solve these tasks and will provide an additional impulse to new nanoindustry projects. You are welcome to take an active part in the work of the Forum!
