The Science – Business Forum. NANO-inspirations in the architecture and construction industry will be held on 25 May 2022, from 8.40 a.m. to 2.30 a.m. The event is organised by the Industry Cooperation Office of the University of Silesia in Katowice. The University is the leader of the Regional Specialist Observatory of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials consortium.
The Forum aims to initiate cooperation of scientific research units with entrepreneurs in the field of nanotechnology and nanomaterials as well as to popularise knowledge about the implementation of nanotechnology in the architecture and construction industry. The presented content will be practical and focused on the commercial usage of nanotechnology.
The event is addressed to, in particular, entrepreneurs from different industries and sectors of the economy, designers, students, and researchers. The forum will take place in the main hall number P/0/05 of the Silesian Centre for Education and Interdisciplinary Research (Chorzów, ul. 75 Pułku Piechoty 1A).
You can sign up for the event by Friday 20 May 2022. Anybody interested in participating is asked to fill in the electronic form.
