Global Nanotechnology Network

The Third Workshop intended to develop the Global Nanotechnology Network (GNN) will take place in Saarbrucken, Germany, on May 26-27, 2005. The first development workshop, held in Cancun, Mexico in 2001, identified the need for a global infrastructure to enhance international collaborations in nano research and education. The second, held in Yokohama, Japan in 2003, identified common interests and created broad-based international support for the project. A third workshop is being co-organized by German, Japanese and US partners.

The hosts are the Leibniz-Institute for New Materials in Saarbrucken and the CC-NanoChem network.
