INTRODUCTION AND HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE ON NANOTECHNOLOGY
Prof. Alberto Cigada – Politecnico di Milano – Dipartimento di Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica “Giulio Natta”
During the last years, the word ‘nano’ has been used as prefix to different disciplines (nanoelectronics, nanomedicine, nanophysics…), as indication of an infinitely small mathematical quantity. Nanotechnology enable the manipulation of matter through processes on the composition and the structure on a nanometric scale, thus taking advantage of properties that could not be obtained otherwise. It has a nearly unlimited sphere of application, to the extent that it can concern every main manufacturing sector.
What are the main areas of application? Why choose nanotechnology? What are the security issues? What are the new proprierties?
The TUTORIAL session provides a presentation of the basic concepts of nanotechnology and an introduction to the themes and the applications that will be addressed in detail during the event.
10.00 – 10.45
Presentation of innovative startups in the field of nanotechnology, selected with our Call 4 Startups
11.00 – 13.30
Ing. Cesareo – CEO Directa Plus
Avv. Michela Maggi – Titolare, Maggi Legal
Over the last years nanotechnologies have developed and spread thus from being a theme confined to the academic field they have turned into an instrument for industrial innovation, which pervades all productive sectors. The purpose of Nanoforum 2016 is to accompany visitors from theory to practice, with the support of talks and speeches from representatives of Institutions, Research and Business.

Nanotechnology enables more efficient therapies and diagnostics for important diseases.
Nanomedicine and healthcare are multi-discliplinary fields including nanotechnology, materials science, and involving cliniciana and industrialists.
This session presents nanotechnologies, nanomaterials and instrumentation aimed to nanomedicine, nanotoxicity and nanosafety and protection.
