REinEU2016 – EU Conference 2016


About the conference REinEU2016

The international conference REinEU2016 is a prestigious event in the field of nanotechnologies, advanced materials and manufacturing technologies. Its aim is to emphasize and discuss the role of science, research and innovation in the sustainable development of European economy in general and the implementation of reindustrialisation of Europe, meaning increasing the manufacturing sectors’ share in EU's GDP from the current 16% to 20% in 2020, as set in the communiqué of the European Union "For a European Industrial Renaissance".

The conference will focus on the impact of research and innovation on the production of more traditional manufacturing sectors, as well as its effect on competitiveness. With its aim to engage broad representation from the European and international research and innovation communities, including important representatives from the business sector, it will bring together excellent researchers, top decision makers, and leading innovators.
