About the MicroNanoConference

MicroNanoConference

28 – 29 October 2024
Eindhoven University of Technology

Where industry meets science, where problems can find solutions, where employers meet future talent and where trends, challenges and new technologies are highlighted.

We aim for a scientific symposium of high value and a good atmosphere where science and industry can meet and have a good discussion. Therefore, following the format of previous iMNCs, we work on an exciting two-day program with (keynote) speakers from universities, research institutes and industry, break-out sessions on societal challenges and themes, and an evening program on 28 October 2024.

The international MicroNanoConference 2024 brings together science and industry to show how micro-, nano- and quantum technology can solve societal challenges. This edition will have an additional focus on talent matching. Companies and students are encouraged to participate. The language at the MicroNanoConference is English.
