The rapidly emerging areas of nanoscale science and technology are focussed on the design, fabrication, and characterisation of functional objects having dimensions at the nanometer length scale. New advances in this emerging area are expected to have long range implications in a wide variety of different scientific and engineering disciplines.

The importance of nanoscale science is growing worldwide and it is now widely recognised as a critical component to the future growth of the world economy. For example, the U.S. National Science and Technology Council have identified this area as a major contributor to the 21st Century science and technology workforce. As a consequence, Ex President Clinton made the National Nanotechnology Initiative a top priority within US funding agencies.

In response to the growing awareness of the importance of nanotechnology, several Public and Private Organizations closely related with Nanotechnology research, manufacturing or Coordination through European and National networking will organise TNT2001 conference in order to discuss the latest advances.

It can be anticipated that the dynamics of interdisciplinary nanoscale research will reinforce educational connections between disciplines and give birth to new fields that are only envisioned at this moment. New types of education and training will be necessary that lead to a new generation of skilled workers having a multidisciplinary perspective necessary for rapid progress.

Based on the format established at TNT2000, ample time for discussion will be available for meaningful interaction between senior researchers and graduate students.

Funds to offset travel expenses for graduate students to present their work in a poster session at TNT2001 will be available.
