National Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE) is going to organize a 3-day “National Nanotechnology Training Workshop on Advanced Characterization Techniques and Practical Applications of Nanomaterials” during October 27-29, 2014 at National Institute of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE), Faisalabad, Pakistan.
Nanotechnology is the designing and utilization of nano-materials (with size less than 100 nm), devices and systems with novel properties and functions. Nanotechnology has recently emerged as major technical theme across most of the science and engineering disciplines as modern technologies are strongly intertwined by the designing of these nanomaterials. National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering (NIBGE) has established a strong infrastructure to carry out cutting edge research related with this promising field.
Nanobiotechnology Group (NBT) at NIBGE is a dynamic and active group equipped with the most sophisticated, advanced & state of the art research facilities. NIBGE focus on three aspects of nanotechnology; namely synthesis, characterization and properties/applications of nanomaterials. We are immensely delighted to announce a National Nanotechnology Training Workshop at NIBGE, to share and develop expertise in characterization techniques as well as practical applications of nanomaterials. Characterization techniques for nanomaterials will include; Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Zetasizer nano and other complementary techniques. The workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on training through helpful critique and practical sessions. In addition to the lectures, each participant will take part in exercises that allow them to fabricate and characterize materials as well as practice the communication of their own research. This workshop would be immensely beneficial for scientific/researchers community interested in nanotech research in Pakistan.
Researchers/Scholars under 40 years of age from academics, R & D organizations and industrial laboratories with background in Materials Science, Physics, Nanotechnology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Life Sciences. Preference will be given to individuals/employees who are planning to initiate work in this area.
Participants : 20
- For Students Rs. 2,000/- (Mandatory)
- For Employees Rs. 5,000/- (Mandatory)
Accommodation and Meals (Rs. 1,000 / Person / Day, Optional)
Registration Deadline: October 22, 2014
Note: All dues should be paid before or at the time of registration by the selected participants in the form of Cash/Bank Draft in favour of “Accounts Officer, NIBGE, Fsd”.
