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

11.05.2011
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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
