Nanotechnology provides fascinating new solutions for formulation problems. But also creates new challenges, which do not show up at the macro- or micro-scale. The NanoFormulation-session will provide actual insights into this still new and growing field with application examples from physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and pharmaceutical technology.
The NanoFormulation conference series started as part of the international events under an EU funded program called InForm (Integrating Nanomaterials in Formulations). InForm was an EU coordination action funded by FP7 involving 17 world-leading institutions which brought together formulation scientists from Europe, USA and Asia-Pacific involved in the formulation of nanomaterials. Starting as a yearly event, and now as a biannual event, NanoFormulation conferences have been held in different locations in Europe and Asia: 2010, in Stockholm; 2011 in Singapore; 2012 in Barcelona; and 2014 in Manchester. The NanoFormulation conference series has created a multidisciplinary community, building bridges between scientists developing novel nanostructured materials and formulators aiming to create new products in a variety of areas, from healthcare to energy.
The organizing institutions are bringing NanoFormulation2016 as part of Formula VIII, which will take place in Barcelona between the 4-7th July 2016. We are delighted to invite formulators and scientists developing novel nanostructured materials to participate in this meeting and strengthen our community.
