In Latin America, Nano-Biomaterials (NanoBio), Nanotechnology and Nanoscience (Nano) area have been recognized as one of the main fields of strategic technological development. For developing countries, the Nano and NanoBio area represents a challenge and an opportunity to be competitive on the international stage. In Brazil, the launch of the National Programs (PNN) with the "BrasilNano" Network and of the MCTI plans for the National Development, consolidated Nano area as strategic for the country.
These programs have been supported by the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communication (MCTIC) in partnership with the Ministry of Education (MEC) and state research promotion agencies (FAPs). These actions stimulated basic scientific research, made possible greater investments in the laboratories, providing a rapid advance in the Brazilian scientific production in the Nano and NanoBio area, which today is the largest in Latin America. In the BrasilNano network, the research centers and the business sector that incorporate nanotechnology into their products are involved.
This special session held within the NANOSMAT conference will provide a platform to showcase the developments of Nano-Biomaterials, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in the Latin America area.
People from Latin America countries are encouraged to submit their abstracts for this session relating to "Nano" or “NanoBio” to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 May 2019.
