4th European Joint Conference for Nanomedicine brings together the Nanomedicine community

The major European event in the path-breaking field of Nanomedicine is the 4th European Conference for Clinical Nanomedicine taking place from May 23 to May 25, 2011 in Basel, Switzerland.
The conference focuses on the clinical application of novel developments in nanosciences and is organised by the CLINAM Foundation, in collaboration with the ETP Nanomedicine. It also includes industrial topics, opinions and recommendations from regulatory authorities as well as discussion panels on ethical questions and the wider societal implications.

Joint work with Nanomedicine institutional stakeholders

The non-profit organisation CLINAM Foundation is the leading partner organising this major conference on Nanomedicine in Europe and works in collaboration with the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Further partners are the European Society for Nanomedicine (ESNAM) and the European Science Foundation (ESF).

ETPN’s focus on generating European projects and translational issues

The ETP Nanomedicine contributes to CLINAM 2011 by organising 3 of 23 sessions held during the conference. The emphasis is on European Policy and funding, industrial challenges and projects’ proposals for joint collaborative research:

- Strategic Vision, Future Joint Research and Translation of Results, Needs for Policy Initiatives for the Benefit of the Patient (24th May 2011 – 11:15)

- Industrial Perspectives of Nanomedicine 2011 – 2020: Round table with six representatives from academia and industry (24th May 2011 – 12:00)

- ETPN Flash Proposals Session: Presentation of ideas for collaborative research projects (25th May 2011 – 10:45)

About the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine - ETPN

The ETPN was established in 2005 as a joint venture of the European Commission, large industrial companies, SMEs and academic research institutions to investigate and advance joint activities in the area of medical nanotechnology. The ETPN contributed to the set up of numerous European-funded projects. The aim is to reach an efficient translation of R&D results into innovative products and to set the dialog with European legislation and regulations authorities. The ETPN supports its members with the coordination of their joint research efforts and the improvement of communication between the European Commission and the European Member States.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
