Innovation Summit on Nano Sensors & Power Electronics – Enablers for the Future Society

January 31, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

>>Sign up for the Innovation Summit<<

The future society will be built on sustainable supply and use of electricity. In order to harvest, store and convert electric energy, for the use of e.g. autonomous electric cars, sensors and control devices based on nanotechnology are important components. Another component is an intelligent communication infrastructure, for instance built on an IoT architecture, utilizing connected sensors and control devices.

The Innovation summit brings together established industry and enterprises, academia and entrepreneurs from different fields. The summit will focus on market challenges and needs as well as on recent research results and technology breakthroughs for nano sensors and power electronics.

Take this opportunity to learn about existing business opportunities and challenges, explore new ideas and collaborations and get a flavor of the cutting-edge research that is being conducted within nano sensors, power electronics, IoT and energy conversion.

Please note that the program ends at 1.30 pm.
