Following the success of the previous four editions, the promoting organizations Italian Association for
Industrial Research (AIRI) and NanoItaly Association are delighted to announce:
NanoInnovation 2020, 15-18 September, Rome
which will be held in the traditional venue of the Renaissance Cloister by Sangallo at the Faculty of Civil and
Industrial Engineering of “Sapienza” University of Rome in Via Eudossiana 18.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, this year the event will be held in a hybrid way: some initiatives will take
place only online, while others, including thematic symposia, training courses and much more, will take place
both online and in attendance. Of course, the possibility to attend the conference in presence will depend on
the epidemic condition and ministerial dispositions, but in any case, it will be possible to follow the conference
NanoInnovation is the national meeting place for the wide and multidisciplinary community involved in the
development of nanotechnologies and their integration with other key enabling technologies (KETs), in all

Researchers, technologists, managers, entrepreneurs and investors can share their experiences,
opinions and expectations about the role of nanotechnologies for future innovations
Professionals and business operators can better understand how to take advantage from the use and
application of nano-related products.
Young researchers, PhDs and students, can gather latest insights on scientific and technical
developments in nanotechnologies
Media and the public can have an overview of concrete and up-to-date applications of nanotechnologies
