Today, the NanoFabNet Hub was launched as a new network supporting suatinability in and through high-tech innovation.
Set up as an ‘International Hub for sustainble High-Tech Innovation’, the NanoFabNet Hub provides a one-stop-shop for all matters and concerns pertaining to sustainable high-tech innovation and its successful incorporation into the complex, large-scale high-value industries by bringing together governmental and academic laboratories with large industries and SMEs.
The NanoFabNet Hub U.S.-launch event was held as part of the TechConnect World Innovation Conference&Expo 2022, which took place in Washington D.C. (National Harbor), 13 – 15. June 2022.
