Nanotechnology for Clean Growth: Small Science, Big Opportunities

Posted on: 01/05/2018

Nanotechnology developers and users invited to an event to show where it can play a key role in clean growth.

The global nanotechnology market is expected to reach $174bn by 2025 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18%. A high growth market is driven by the ever-increasing demand for device miniaturisation, improved performance, and functionality integration whilst clean technologies and innovations are gaining more and more traction from governments and industries.

KTN invites nanotechnology developers and users to HiPerNano 2018 – a series of discussions, debates, and presentations covering areas where nanotechnology can play a key role in clean growth. Topics include resource efficiency, environmentally friendly nanomaterials, clean mobility, and energy.
