#ETPN2020, the 15th annual event of ETPN, European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine, finally goes FULLY VIRTUAL!

2 days to share & learn from the European Nanomedicine community!

About ETPN2020

ETPN2020 is a virtual conference bringing together scientists, technology providers, entrepreneurs, industry and clinicians, all of them developing great medical applications of Nanotechnologies and emerging MedTech.

Join us and participate to strategic discussions about the future of Nanomedicine & sessions about translation to clinic of nanomedical products.

ETPN2020 is co-organized this year by the ETPN and IESL-FORTH, the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas

Share your success story

The ETPN2020 program will leave room for networking to optimize your participation to the event: find new partners for R&D and end-users of your technologies, build your next successful Horizon Europe or EuroNanoMed consortium, pitch your SME or inventions, meet all stakeholders from Research to Industry!

Boost your innovation

ETPN2020 is indeed a young scientist / entrepreneur friendly event! Live sessions of the HealthTech Translation Advisory Board (TAB) will be held at ETPN2020. The TAB is a free-of-charge mentoring service providing you with holistic and milestone-driven support by industry experts, boosting your innovation in Nanomedicine. A workshop on Translational Nanomedicine will also let you ask all the key questions to move forward to the clinic faster.

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 15th Annual Event of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN2020) that we will host in Heraklion, Crete this coming Octobe. Our major objective is to provide a forum where the participants will be able to discuss the science and catalyze innovation in nanomedical technology, to identify future challenges in research as well as to provide an environment for interaction and collaboration among the members of the international nanomedicine community.  We expect that ETPN 2020 will be a meeting of the highest quality, where scientists will have the opportunity to analyze the most recent advances in diagnostics, therapeutics and regenerative medicine, which can have a remarkable impact on human health.

We at the Institute of Electronic Structure & Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (FORTH) are honored and proud to act as the local Organizer of this 15th Annual Event of ETPN. We look forward to seeing you all in Heraklion Crete.

Prof. Spiros Anastasiadis

Director, IESL-FORTH

Dear ETPN members, dear Nanomedicine colleagues,

First of all, I hope everything is fine with you and your families in these challenges times.

The European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) is happy to invite you to ETPN2020, our 15th annual event, which this year will visit Heraklion, Crete, for the second time after the successful ETPN2016. We hope that the global situation has improved until October, so we can meet in person, but in any case, we will be creative and find a solution for networking and scientific exchange also this year.

We organize the ETPN2020 in close collaboration with our Crete partners from IESL-FORTH, the Institute for Electronics, Structure and Laser of the Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas under the lead of Prof. Anastasiadis and Dr. Georgina Kaklamani.

ETPN2020 will be a unique place to discover, to network, to showcase, to design new projects and to brainstorm about the industrial expansion of Nanomedicine, all in a friendly atmosphere. Most important will be to discuss the role and possibility of nanomedicine in the coming European program Horizon Europe and learn more about this program. Also, it will be interesting to learn more about the progress of ETPNs interaction with other emerging medical technologies in the European project NOBEL, which will be crucial towards innovative solutions for the benefit of the patients.

ETPN2020 will have a mix of key invited presentations and possibilities for you to present your projects in addition to a lot of networking in breaks and social events, all in a nice, friendly and vibrant atmosphere.

We look forward to seeing you all in Crete at ETPN2020!
