National Associations play a key role in developing a successful nanotechnology sector.  They play multiple roles, including support for start-ups, international promotion and collaboration and working with governments at regional and national level.

Join NIA for a webinar on good practise in supporting your national nano-community, how to get started and how to work together for a strong international impact.

The meeting will feature NIA’s National Association Members to share good practise, lessons learned and future opportunities.  This will be followed by open discussion for all delegates on key aspects of successful support at local and national levels.

The webinar is free to attend and we welcome all actors involved in supporting an industrial nano-community.
