What is NIBS?

The NIBS conference is organized by the Mads Clausen Institute at University of Southern Denmark, the North German Initiative Nanotechnology Schleswig-Holstein e.V.  (NINa SH eV) network, led by Kiel University, Germany, Kaunas University of Technology and Lithuanian Materials Research Society, Lithuania.

Conference will take place on 14-16 June 2017, in Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania.

Attendees from industry, academia and politics are invited to enter in a dialogue about the potential for interdisciplinary applications and new products from nanotechnology.

NIBS offers:
       - state-of-the-art and stimulating presentations
       - matchmaking events
       - a dialogue platform between experienced and young researchers from industry and academia

NIBS provides presentations from companies and research institutions on current trends in the field of nanotechnology. Companies have the opportunity to communicate their success stories and the newest developments in-house. Young scientists present their work and find entrepreneurial opportunities.



In contrast to national conferences, NIBS brings together researchers and business stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) as well as parties involved in the cooperation with the BSR partners to share latest achievements in research, innovative solutions and applications in the field of nanotechnology. In contrast to large scale international conferences, NIBS focuses on the BSR, where the innovation potential from newest technologies is utmost high.


What’s in it for me? Why participate?

The NIBS conference offers an ideal opportunity to increase your visibility as a scientist, company or other stakeholder in the field of nanotechnology within the Baltic Sea Region. You can benefit from an active regional nanotechnology network and get a perfect stage to initiate new projects or start-ups and find new partners and customers, respectively.
