Call for applications: Training Workshop on Nanotechnology and its Applications for Sustainable Cities and Coasts

Nanotech Futuristic Solutions and the WIOMSA Cities and Coasts project are pleased to announce the call for applications for a workshop on Nanotechnology and Its Applications for Sustainable Cities and Coasts, that will take place in Johannesburg South Africa on 29 November- 4 December 2021.

This training workshop will equip professionals and practitioners from various fields with fundamental tools of nanoscience and will make them better prepared in implementing and utilizing nanotechnology in marine science, city planning, science policy advocacy and renewable energy systems. By offering practical sessions on the application of nanotechnology, the training provides a first-hand experience on nanotechnology and helps to close the gap in its potential uses in diverse fields.  This will enable the development of policies for better management of wastewater and building of smart green cities. The nanotechnology trainees will act as a think tank for the much-needed advancement and expertise of nanotechnology within the Western Indian Ocean region and the African continent.

The training is open to participants from the Western Indian Ocean members states in Africa and the adjacent island states and targets advocacy experts, marine scientists, city planners, university postgraduate students and engineering professionals who are interested in nanotechnology.

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2021. Applications should be sent to, copied to and
