Be ready for new opportunities! Nanotechnology will totally change our society, industry and lives

With nanotechnology we can determine what properties a material should have. The technology creates completely unique opportunities for sustainable development in all areas where we use materials. Maria Strömme will provide examples of how to treat cancer better, diagnose diseases before we get symptoms, teach our bodies to rejuvenate themselves, create environmentally friendly and smart packaging, give our clothes completely new features, make patches that determine how wounds should heal and show results from the world’s first Grand Prix with nano cars.

Maria Strömme, Professor in nanotechnology at Uppsala University.
