Nanotech Meeting Room, Suzhou Nanotech Co., Ltd.

Floor 5, South Block of Building A1, 218 Xinghu Avenue, Suzhou Industrial Park




NanoGlobe together with Suzhou Nanotech are launching Bio-inspired Nanostructures, Systems, and Manufacturing as the theme of The 5th Workshop on Manufacturing Technologies for a Sustainable Society, to be held on December 16, 2011 at Suzhou Industrial Park (China). We are honored to invite you to join the workshop and share your R&D activities and insights on bio-inspired technologies & manufacturing, and related business opportunities. 

This is an invited-only event. The invited participants will include industry and academic experts from Austria, China, Japan, Singapore, and USA. The presentations and discussion of the workshop will focus on:

  • Bio-inspired Functional Structure Fabrication Technologies 
  • Bio-inspired Functional Materials Applications (self-cleaning, anti-reflection, anti-fog, and structural color, etc.)
  • Manufacturing Feasibility
  • Economic & Environmental Impact  
  • Technology Roadmap

The Workshop on Manufacturing Technologies for a Sustainable Society is a bimonthly series of workshops offering a powerful forum for the speakers to present their company/organization's technologies, products and services to China's industry and R&D leaders, giving opportunities to establish strategic partnerships. The city of Suzhou is well regarded as an innovation hub, being ranked top 3 in "2010 China's Most Innovative Cities" by Forbes, and has also been designated by China's Ministry of Science and Technology as China's nanotech cluster, with a focus on commercialization. 

We will arrange site visits of Suzhou's nanotechnology infrastructure and China's leading biomimetic research & industry players. Suzhou is a beautiful, ancient garden city known as the "Venice of the Orient". We will provide you with glimpses of the city's charm, too.
