NANOTEC2008, jointly organised by Airi/Nanotec IT, Veneto Nanotech and Regione Veneto, intends to:

• Give a comprehensive picture of nanotechnology at Italian level in relation to activity, perspectives and needs, in comparison to what happens in other countries;
• Present the latest developments and trends in terms of R&D, applications and governance at world level;
• Offer the opportunity for a debate amongst representatives of industry, public research and governmental bodies;
