aterial Science in Cuba has a history as one of the first area to be
focused by the young Cuban scientific community back in the early
sixties. Nanotechnology, on the other hand, has been of course a more
recent endevour. We have been engaged in projects since more or less
years, and can show results in the area through scientific
publications in international peer reviewed journals. Recently, there
has been an initiative to build a centre of nanotechnology in the
country that we hope will boost our research in the subject and
investments are currently been done in this area.

In our university there are several groups working on the subject and
today we lead the national effort in this direction. Young people have
been involved in PhD studies in nanoscience abroad and a young
generation is coming in. In the month of February we are launching the
initiative NanoUH which will encompass all the efforts that the
University of Havana is doing in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

You will find more information on the attached flyers.

The conference hopes to gather policy makers, researchers, professors,
students of the Iberoamerican region and will be an excellent moment
exchange among scientist and the build up of joint projects and

If you feel interested please do not hesitate to contact us for any
further information and to arrange the sponsorship.

In Cuba you will find a country famous for its hospitality, the joy of
their people and also their talented scientist.
