INASCON 2020 – more than 1000 registered participants from all over the world
This year the conference is organized by a team of 35 Lund University undergraduate students. Due to the circumstances around COVID-19 the conference is broadcasted online and has attracted a huge interest.
– Nanocience is still a rather specific research area, yet applicable in many different fields. With this conference we aim to inspire students to pursue different carrier paths within nanotechnology, says Linnea Jönsson, nanoscience student from Lund University and one of the organizers.
The conference aims to showcase the amazing possibilties that nanoscience creates for the world, from nanobiomedicine to nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and more. The first day of the conference included talks by many leading scientist, including the Nobel laureate Ben Feringa, who participated via link from the Netherlands. The digital format includes many new ways of performing workshops, panel discussions, poster sessions and even virtual tours of the Lund Nano Lab and the synchrotron facility MAX IV.
And for the first time in INASCON's history: the conference is arranged free of charge, open for everyone, no matter where you are located in the world.
