The Nano Symposium
The Passion for Science Nano Symposium is open to all interested in the current status of nanoscience research.
Our distinguished keynote speakers, Professor Dr. Virginijus Šikšnys - Kavli Prize winner 2018 for the invention of CRISPR-Cas9, a nano-tool for editing DNA - , and Professor Dr. Thomas Ebbesen - Kavli Prize winner 2014 for transformative contributions to the field of nano-optics - present examples from their research.
Also, young nano scientists present a variety of topics showing the high quality and broad coverage within nanoscience research at The University of Bergen.
We welcome students, PhD candidates, young researchers, senior faculty staff, administration, collaboration partners and the public audience to take part in this exciting symposium about nanoscience.
