Within the two days leading experts and specialists from all over Europe will discuss the implementation of recommendations identified by the nanomedicine community that will shape the future of the sector in Europe.
The event takes place in Grenoble, France and is organised by CEA-Leti, a leading French research and technology organisation focused on nanotechnologies and their applications in healthcare.
The event aims to provide further details on the ETPN’s recommendations for nanomedicine under the upcoming Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020, the EU's main instrument for research funding in Europe, launching from 2014-2020.
Patrick Boisseau, chairman of the ETPN, said: “The first line has been crossed with the official renewal of the ETPN as a European Technology Platform, which represents an increasingly key element in the European innovation ecosystem and a main bridge between the community and the European Commission that is needed to implement Horizon 2020.”
He added, “We look forward to welcoming all European stakeholders involved in the nanomedicine field during the ETPN GA at CEA-Leti. Organising our annual event at this widely recognised scientific location will bring the ETPN even closer to the nanomedicine community and will provide participants with the opportunity to visit state-of-the-art facilities on site.”
The event focus on establishing the ETPN’s new action plan with a strong attention on strengthening industry engagement and extending the platform’s community as nanomedical R&D is expected to progress in the upcoming years from the pre-clinical to the clinical testing stage. Furthermore, future milestones will be set for the implementation of the recently released White Paper’s concept elaborated by the NANOMED2020 European consortium to drive innovation across Europe in nanomedicine. The White Paper “Contribution of Nanomedicine to Horizon 2020” can be downloaded on the ETPN website: http://www.etp-nanomedicine.eu/etpn-white-paper-2013.
To support and manage the translation of excellent research into innovative medical products in areas of unmet medical need efficiently, the nanomedicine community strives to set up a Translation Hub as an umbrella of dedicated new infrastructures. Notably, this includes a certain Translational Advisory Board to select, guide, and push forward the top applicable concepts: A novel funding instrument for SMEs, and an EU-NCL infrastructure with the strong involvement of its U.S. counterpart, the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (US-NCL) in Frederick, Maryland.
On October 1, following keynote openings from high-level representatives of the French government and the European Commission, selected experts and leading industry specialists will introduce the latest issues evolving around the nanomedicine ecosystem and value chain.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
