SNI Annual Event
In light of the uncertainties inherent to the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to cancel the SNI Annual Event. Our colleagues’ health is even more important to us than academic exchange. We therefore look forward to seeing you at next year’s Annual Event from September 9 to 10, 2021.


Nano Image Award
The fantastic images submitted by members of the SNI network really help our outreach materials to stand out. We are therefore pleased to announce that submissions are open for this year’s Nano Image Award. The three winning photos will each be awarded CHF 300. Please send your images of the micro and nano world to along with a title and short description by November 15. We look forward to receiving a fascinating selection of beautiful images.

The Swiss NanoConvention 2021 will take place on June 24 and 25, 2021 in Basel. The SNI will host the event in collaboration with the Swiss MNT Network. Please add it to your diaries now!
