Report from NanoFormulation2010

NanoFormulation2010 was held from June 9-11, 2010 in Stockholm/ Sweden. The conference was organised within the InForm project which is a European coordination action integrated in the 7th framework programme of the European Commission. NanoFormulation2010 was the first in a series of three conferences.

The scope of the conference was to present new results in research, development and applications of innovative formulation technologies where nanomaterials play an essential role. NanoFormulation2010 brought together over 190 leading researchers and practitioners from around the world to exchange knowledge and best practice in a variety of activities that include seminars, on-site visits, and networking sessions.

The on-site visit of the laboratories of the Ytkemiska Institutet YKI, Institute for Surface Chemistry, allowed researchers to visit an internationally leading industrial research institute in applied surface and colloid chemistry in Sweden. 69 participants took advantage of the on-site visit at YKI. A fact-finding mission booklet was available to participants to showcase nanotechnology in Sweden. This booklet can be downloaded from the website, www.nanoformulations2010.com

NanoFormulation2010 conferees can now download presentations from the InForm website and continue to liaise with researchers from academia, industry (both multinational and SMEs), learned societies and the different world regions including Europe, Asia-Pacific and America through the partnering tool.

NanoFormulation2010 was closely linked to the Formula VI conference which was organised in the same facilities from June 7-10, 2010. The excellent location, the supportive staff at Stockholm University and the professional planning of the conference by the project members have contributed to an overall successful international conference. The joint networking sessions have enabled participants of both events to communicate, exchange ideas and has thus been an ideal forum for networking.
