CRANN Involvement in ESOF 2012

ESOF 2012 was held in Dublin’s convention centre from the 11th – 15th of July . It is Europe’s largest, general science meeting and is held in a leading Europe city every two years. ESOF is an interdisciplinary, pan-European meeting, held under the auspices of Euroscience, which aims to:

  • Showcase the latest advances in science and technology;
  • Promote a dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy;
  • Stimulate and provoke public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology.

CRANN had the opportunity to showcase our research in a number of different ways over the course of this event, details of which are below:

CRANN had a stand in ESOF main hall- part of SFI’s CSET group. The stand was manned by CRANN staff from 3 - 6.30, 11th, 12 – 3, 13th and 9 – 2 on the 15th.

Prof Jonathan Coleman delivered a lecture on the 12th entitled- “Tiny but mighty: How today's nano-materials will lead to tomorrow's technologies”.
