NANO 2017 Conference Mentoring Program

Student and young professional development is very important to TAPPI’s Nanotechnology Division and the Nano Division Student Committee.  Nano's Mentoring Program is designed to help young professionals make the most of their conference experience.  Experts will be paired with young professionals to mentor them during the conference.  This will include tips on making the most of the networking events, connecting with other researchers around the globe, and visiting the tabletop exhibitors.
