This ½-day session showcases the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of sustainable nanofabrication, ranging from basic research and scientific discovery of novel building blocks and phenomena on the nanometer scale, to the development, validation and piloting of those products and processes that increasingly form the central elements of a green, sustainable and responsible future of innovation and manufacturing.

The session is organized and presented by the NanoFabNet – a new one-stop-shop for all matters and concerns pertaining to sustainable nanofabrication and its successful incorporation into complex, large-scale high-value commercialization by networking governmental and academic laboratories with large companies and SMEs. The NanoFabNet is a community initiative that aims to bridge the gap between the understanding and large-scale practices of sustainability and that of low-scale, low-volume processes in the high-tech sector.

During this session, experts from the sustainability and nanofabrication communities will provide insights into their organizations' achievements in sustainable nanofabrication, and the opportunities for international collaboration that these provide; invited speakers come from leading institutes and companies in the European Union and the USA.


Advanced manufacturing enables transfer of science and technology into new products and processes. It is particularly pertinent for technologically complex products and for the commercialization of advanced materials such as those highlighted at TechConnect World. This symposium focuses on challenges and success stories in technology development and highlights exciting new approaches to solving manufacturing challenges.
