Why Helsinki? 

Land of the Midnight Sun is also home to numerous nano research/business initiatives

Finland is one of the key EU centers of applied research and business related to nanotechnology, and the country has a unique focus on paper, paperboard, cellulosic pulp and fibers. Forests cover 75% of Finland’s land area, and the forest industry accounts for over 20% of export revenue.

The Finnish nanotechnology research community is also closely aligned with the nation’s technical universities. Helsinki is home to Aalto University, University of Helsinki, and Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT).

You do not need to look far for examples of collaboration. VTT and Aalto University operate OtaNano, an open access national research infrastructure that focuses on competitive research in nanoscience and -technology, as well as quantum technologies. Micronova is a part of OtaNano and offers facilities in micro- and nanofabrication, nanomicroscopy and low temperature measurements, and quantum engineering.

In addition to attending 2020 Nano’s comprehensive technical program, Helsinki offers a myriad of cultural and outdoor activities. A compact, walkable city that is easily explored on foot, visitors enjoy the varied design, architecture, and shopping experiences, as well as large park areas, forests, lakes, and a scenic coastline with numerous islands sprinkled off it.

Join us in Helsinki, 8-11 June at TAPPI Nano 2020 and experience the Land of the Midnight Sun!
