CHInano 2017 Conference & Expo, also known as the 8th CHInano, kicked off at Suzhou International Expo Centre on Oct 25 and will last for three days. More than 1,000 nanotech enterprises and research institutes from 25 countries and regions, such as Nikon, SUSS and SAWATEC, participate to display over 1,300 latest nanotech-based products.
CHInano, an annual event initiated in 2010, has become the first choice of related enterprises and institutes to showcase their products and technologies and seek cooperation opportunities.
This year's event consists of a keynote speech session and 12 specialized meetings centering on new nano materials, nano manufacturing, energy and clean technologies as well as nano-biotechnology. In addition, two international project fairs will take place to increase cooperation opportunities. Moreover, 21 domestic and overseas academicians will be present to share their cutting-edge nanotechnologies.
Likewise, the Nanotech-based Smart Life Exhibition Hall becomes another highlight of the event, displaying more than 100 smart products applying nanotechnologies.
At the opening ceremony, Jiangsu Nanotechnology Innovation Center, CAS Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-bionics and International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory signed the China-Europe Nano Resources Collaboration Agreement. Also, the Yangtze River Delta Research Institute of the 3rd-Generation Semiconductor and Suzhou Chamber of Commerce of Nanotech Industry were inaugurated.
