Swiss NanoConvention

It’s official: the Swiss NanoConvention 2020 in Basel is being postponed until next year!

Nevertheless, a call will still be sent out for the Swiss Nanotechnology PhD Award, and the prizes will still be awarded – although the award ceremony will take place next year. The deadline for submissions is 15 May 2020. Further information

Despite the postponement, please submit your images of micro or nano structures for the SNC2020 Image Award by 15 May 2020.

The Nanotechnology Start-up Prize will not be awarded in 2020. However, start-ups can submit their applications by 15 May. All start-ups taking part this year will automatically participate next year – even if they no longer meet the requirement of being founded during the last five years. In this case, the application documents can be updated as required. Further information
