NanoInnovation ( will take place on September, 20 - 23 in the Renaissance Cloister by Sangallo at the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering, Sapienza University of Rome.
NanoInnovation aims to represent the reference national event for the wide and multidisciplinary community involved in the development of nanotechnologies and in their integration with other enabling technologies (KETs) in all application fields. The event represents an unmissable opportunity of meeting among University, Research and Entrepreneurial systems, providing a discussion platform, where researchers, technologists, managers, entrepreneurs and investors can meet and share experiences, opinions and expectations about the growing role of nanotechnology in the KETs evolution toward a sustainable innovation from a social, environmental and economic point of view.


Technical Session : GRAPHENE and BEYOND: progress, challenges and opportunities 

Thursday 22.08 - Chair V. Morandi

In the last years graphene based research has witnessed an incredible expansion, which, for example, in Europe has culminated with the launch of the Graphene Flagship. Moreover, not only graphene but a wide class of 2D materials beyond graphene (Silicene, Phosporene, BN, MoS2) were attracting the interest of both research institutions and private stakeholders.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists working on different technological uses not only of graphene, but also of 2D materials beyond graphene, in a multidisciplinary, academic and industrial environment, to disclose and discuss challenges and opportunities of this new class of materials.
