Pathway to "NanoWorld" - A Complete Training Programme

10 March 2020 09:30-16:30, Liverpool, United Kingdom

The programme has been carefully designed to prepare the learners for embracing the new era by offering them the required knowledge and professional skill sets according to their background and as fit their prior experience with the subject. Two levels are therefore developed, Fundamentals and Advance (A&B).

Learners who complete Level A can apply to join and complete level B. Those with prior knowledge of the subject may choose to apply for Level B only.

Workshop A - NanoParticles & NanoFilms 
Fundamentals & Basic Concepts: 

Who should attend: 
This workshop fits anyone with minimum GCSE/A level in Chemistry/Physics background and look to learn and involve in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. 

At the end of this course you should learn:
  • fundamentals of Nanoparticles and Nanofilms, their properties and current applications in order to get ready to enter into Nano world 
  • the background required to attend Workshop B (Optional) to complete your knowledge and skills to work with materials and coatings at Nano scale.
  • to identify the paths to find new opportunities in Nanomaterials and Nanocoatings. 
Main Topics:
  • Basic concepts in Nano: Introduction to Nanosciece & Nanotechnology; Introduction to Nanoparticles and Nanocoatings 
  • Preparation and Properties of Nanomaterials and Nanofilms: Physical and Chemical Properties; Preparation of Nanoparticles and Nanofilms; Characterisation and identification 
  • Current Applications in daily life and industry: pharmaceuticals and medicine; Cosmetics, modified surfaces, paints and coatings; Electronics and sensors
Date: Wednesday 10th March 2020
Duration: One full day
Venue: Liverpool Science Park, 131 Mount Pleasant L3 5TF
