Welcome to the March edition of MyAZoNano, your customised free monthly
newsletter from www.azonano.com that brings to your inbox,
the latest news, events and technical information on the
nanotechnology subjects that interest you.
My AZoNano March Sponsor -
Veneto Nanotech is
a cluster of research institutions, innovative companies,
and private and public investors, who are working to
foster entrepreneurship in nanotechnology. Based in
Veneto, NE Italy, the organisation is centred around
the local universities - Padua, Venice and Verona -
and their research departments, which specialise in
applying nanotechnology techniques to materials.
The first research projects performed by Veneto Nanotech will
take place at its Nanofabrication Facility (NFF). To
begin with, the NFF is hosting research projects in:
- Nanostructures for chemical and biochemical
- Deposition of layers with high tribological
- Nanostructured materials for protective and
- Deposition of nanometric thin films and thick
coatings of inorganic, organic or hybrid
- Construction of microarrays for genomics and
As the centre also offers International Master in
Nanotechnology (IMN) courses to students, it’s clear
that Veneto Nanotech has the right people, creative mix
of industry/academia and resources required to make it a
leading player in the nanotechnology field.
