Gateway to Nanoscience: The convergence of disciplines

Brussels, 3 October 2006 -- The "European Forum on Nanosciences", organised by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) with the support of the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the ERA-NET Consortium on Nanoscience in the European Research Area will take place on 19 and 20 October in the Charlemagne Building of the European Commission. The event will gather some 400 experts from all across Europe; making it the first high-level conference on nanoscience being held.

What are Nanosciences?

Nanosciences explore what happens on the "nanometric" scale and thus in a dimension, where our understanding of rules gained on "macro" scale, has to be revised. Nanosciences, being primarily the extension of existing sciences into the realms of the extremely small, are now advancing rapidly thanks to the strong synergy among disciplines, encouraging connections with biotechnology and biomedicine, information technology and computing science as well as with cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience.

European Forum

The main aim of the "European Forum on Nanosciences" is to explore the wide range of new possibilities, underlining the international and interdisciplinary character of this field. In this context many issues will be addressed: How can nano scale research improve the quality of life? Will future energy problems be powered on nano-scale? How will converging nanosciences transform information society? And finally how can we better structure the research community to answer these questions? High-level experts are invited to present recent scientific achievements in nanosciences. By integrating societal and environmental aspects the urgent need for a broader perspective is demonstrated.

To achieve these aims, COST invited leading scientists from relevant fields to present keynote talks, to give their opinion to different issues and to participate
