Nanomaterials and technologies evolved through them revolutionize our lives by providing technological solutions to several unresolved problems in agriculture, energy, health care - nanomedicine and nanodevices, food-packaging / preservation, electronics, aerospace, imaging and infrastructure. Further, nanoscience expands its horizon and intersect with several basic sciences to establish smart functional interfaces with unique properties such as ultra-high surface area, quantum confinement and biofunctional interactions with living systems. Complete realization of its potential as nanodevices and nano-medicine necessitates proper design approaches and characterization. This workshop ‘Innovations in Nanoworld- Neoteric Vision and Emerging NanoTechnologies (INNVENT)-2017’ Organized by IUCND and ECS Student Chapter, Cochin University of Science and Technology during December 13-15, 2017 aims to bring together scholars and fellows who are actively involved in both basic and applied nanoscience and technology research to bring awareness about the scientific advances of nanomaterials with special reference to Fuel Cells, Energy Storage devices, Nanomedicine-Mechanisms and Barriers, Supramolecular chemistry, etc. In addition the workshop offer opportunity to researchers to get enriched with fundamental and advanced characterization techniques associated with nanomaterials for various emerging applications.
