EuroNanoForum 2015 has confirmed some of the foremost minds to lead the discussion
in Riga, Latvia. With the theme being “Nanotechnology for European competitiveness”,
the speaker list offers a diverse range of topics for delegates to discuss, debate and
learn about. Set for 10-12 June 2015, speakers’ highlights include:
2014 European CTO of the Year Gert-Jan Gruter, of Netherlands-based SME
Avantium, known for revolutionising the plastics market through his work on
next generation bio-based polyesters for fibers films and bottles.
2014 Millennium Technology Prize Winner Stuart Parkin, Director at the Max
Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics and an IBM Fellow. Parkin’s
groundbreaking discoveries, building on the work of European Nobel Laureates
Albert Fert and Peter Grünberg, enabled a more than 1000-fold increase in the
magnetic hard-disk-drive data-density contact.
Meyya Meyyappan, Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology at the Center for
Nanotechnology, NASA Ames Research Center, who received an IEEE Pioneer
Award in Nanotechnology in 2011 for carbon nanotube application development
