On 18 – 19th October 2022, the international conference InterNanoPoland 2022 was held for all enthusiasts of nanotechnology and materials engineering in the broadest sense; entrepreneurs, scientists, business environment organizations and students. During the sixth edition of the InterNanoPoland 2022 conference, the latest developments in the world of nanotechnology in science and industry were presented. Panel discussions addressed topics related to the commercialization of research and the importance of the 3W Idea for the development of a modern economy. During thematic panels, conference participants could listen to lectures given by scientists and companies from the nanotechnology sector. Plenary lectures were given by Professor Patrick J. Masset, an authority in the field of the modification of conventional materials at the nanometric level, and Dr Lucia Bustin, a representative of TSI GmbH, a manufacturer of laboratory and research equipment. InterNanoPoland 2022 has become a space for dialogue between the worlds of science and business. The 2022 edition was held entirely in an in-person format at the Novotel Hotel in Katowice.
The sixth edition of InterNanoPoland:
The conference was co-hosted by the City of Katowice, with the following units as Partners of the thematic panels:
University of Silesia in Katowice
Łukasiewicz – Institute of Technology in Krakow
Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego
Akces NCBR Sp. z o.o.
Two events took place during the InterNanoPoland 2022 conference: a poster session – Research and technologies aimed at the development of the nanotechnological industry – where young scientists had the chance to present the results of their research and Poland’s first competition for nanotechnology enthusiasts NANOTHON.
NANOTHON was the first competition for participants of the InterNanoPoland 2022 conference, where design teams, through their own original projects, could show how they see the development of nanotechnology and its application in the areas of water, carbon, and hydrogen. The challenge posed to the participants was to design a water-hydrogen-carbon non-energy solution that would minimize the negative impact of atmospheric phenomena on human activity and safety.
Four teams of students from the Gdansk University of Technology and AGH University of Science and Technology took part in the competition.
