HiPerNano 2014 is organised by the NanoKTN and sponsored by:

Now in its sixth year, the HiPerNano (High Performance Nano-engineering) Conference and Exhibition is a forum for bringing together nanotechnology solution developers and end-users with engineering challenges to solve.

HiPerNano focuses on performance engineering challenges such as corrosion, erosion, friction, wear, impact, electrical and thermal properties. The event attracts around 80 senior delegates, the majority from industry, and is a unique opportunity for the whole supply chain to network, form partnerships for collaborative research funding, and find commercial products.
