NET-Symposium on Nanotechnology Approaches, Nanomaterials and Thin Films for
Most areas of nanotechnology are at an early stage of their development.
Research in nanoscience and nanotechnology will contribute to the achievement
of fundamental breakthroughs in nanomaterials and processes in energy systems.
In the near future nanotechnology will contribute to efficient and low-cost
systems for generating, storing, and transporting energy.
Materials and structures that are designed and fabricated at the nanoscale
level offer the potential to enhance efficiencies and reduce costs in solar
photovoltaic systems, solar thermal systems, fuel cells and other energy
This symposium on nanotechnology for energy technologies was designed to bring
together different disciplines of energy technology and to discuss the
possible benefits of nanoscience and nanotechnology in their R&D efforts.
The symposium will also review the current state of knowledge in the field of
nanomaterials, functional surfaces and nanostructured coatings for efficient
energy systems as well present novel applications and current challenges and
We expect that this symposium could be also a gate way for high tech ideas and
to find partners in innovative research proposals for the new 7PQ of the
