Milan > Italy


For the project Nanopinion, Moebius has organized a one hour seminar, in English, on a particular theme: the possible relationships between nanotechnology and industrial applications that have to do with steel. The meeting stems from a request that came to Moebius, as a participant in the project Nanopinion, from Calvi Holding, a multinational company in the steel. Below the seminar program, which will be held by three researchers members of the IIT (Italian Institute of Technology): Fabio Di Fonzo, Mark Carvelli and Teodoro Valente.

1)      introduction to nano-technology (the general idea, shape, size, and surface) (FDF)

2)      overview on nanofabrication techniques (and the CNST nanofoundry) (FDF)

3)      examples: protective coatings, surface nanopatterning (hydro-phobic, hydrophilic) self cleaning, bio resistant (FDF)

4)      controlling color and light: photonic crystals (FDF)

5)      flexible organic solar cells on thin metal layers (MC)

6)      nanostructuring metals (TV)



About nanopinion

  • nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The project is aimed citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, which are people who do not normally encounter and give their opinion nanotechnologies at first hand.
  • Dialogue is facilitated online and in outreach events in 30 countries presenting different participatory formats.
  • To promote an informed debate, we also run a strong press & social media campaign and offer a repository with more than 150 resources.
