You don’t have to be a nano scientist to know that nanotechnology is hot – and getting hotter very day. Self-repairing materials, the conversion of CO2 waste into storable energy, quantum-secure authentication, an ‘e-nose’ that can virtually smell diseases at their very earliest stages, a pocket-size desalination unit. These are just some of the many visions, ideas and near possibilities presented and discussed by students and scientists at our 2016 MESA+ Meeting this September in Enschede, the Netherlands. In this MESA+ Newsletter we’d like to fill you in on exciting developments in our field – many of which could have huge implications for your field. Whether you’re in healthcare, pharma, trade and industry, energy or almost any other domain, change is coming your way. And here are some of the people and ideas shaping it.
If on reading this newsletter you have any questions, suggestions or brilliant ideas, please feel free to contact us.
