Spanish initiatives to promote nanoindustry
Presentation of the Catalogue of Nanotechnology Companies in Spain

This catalogue, compiled by the Phantoms Foundation (coordinator of the Spanish Nanotechnology action plan funded by ICEX), provides a general overview of the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology companies in Spain and in particular the importance of this market research, product development, etc.
The principal aim of the 1/2 day event is to present the updated version of this catalogue (78 companies listed) and the feedback of several companies having participated in several activities of the Nanotechnology action plan.

NanoCode Spain National Conference
Code of Conduct on responsible nanotechnologies research (risks and regulations)

Nanotechnology and other advanced and enabling technologies are having a massive impact across a very wide range of industrial sectors. Some European countries have developed voluntary codes intended to promote responsible innovation but which have failed to provide the practical support expected.
This 1/2 day Conference presents the outcomes of the European NanoCode Project, recommendations to promote responsible innovation, and also provides views from leading Spanish experts as to how we can best achieve solutions tailored to Spain innovation landscape.
