Spinverse is organising the third international event integrating nano, materials and production technologies. It gives an outlook to European and global developments and showcases latest innovations in these fields. Industrial Technologies 2014 follows the success of the previous Industrial Technologies conferences in Brussels in 2010 and in Aarhus in 2012.
Industrial Technologies 2014: Smart Growth through Research and Innovation ‐ Towards Europe 2020 takes place in Athens on April 9-11, 2014.
The event offers numerous opportunities to meet and hear international high-level speakers, explore cutting-edge technologies, and network with innovative start-ups, international research organisations, national FDI and technology clusters as well as companies and important stakeholders of the European Technology platforms and the Public Private Partnerships.
