Nanoday – a day with nanoscience and nanotechnology
The “NanoDay – A day with nanoscience and nanotechnology” enterprise is an activity under the 3rd Mission of the University co-financed by the Knowledge Education Development 2014- 2020 Operational Program.
Project POWR.03.01.00-00T154 / 18 “NanoDay – a day with nanoscience and nanotechnology” is co-financed by the European Union from the European Social Fund.
The project is carried out from September 2019 to February 2021 by the University of Wrocław, Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, Institute of Experimental Physics in cooperation with the NANONET Foundation for Supporting Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The Foundation has received, among others, an award for its activities in the 7th edition of the Science Populariser competition.
The aim of the project is to raise the competences of the people participating in higher education, corresponding to the needs of the economy, labour market and society, among others by conducting a 6-hour block of thematic educational seminars on the issues of nanoscience and nanotechnology at selected schools.
