Another EU project, Nanoforumeula will soon start stimulating Euro-Latin American nanocollaborations.

Entrepreneur Ineke Malsch (1966) is ready to explain the development and future prospects of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in Europe and elsewhere to policy makers, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders through lectures, reports or publications.
