The International Network for Sustainable Nano (N4SNano) is proud to announc that registration for the Global Summit 2022 on Nanotechnology for a Healthier and Sustainable Future is now open!

This inaugural event will be held at the University of Waterloo on August 10–11 2022 (EST), with the satellite events at the University of Sydney on August 11–12 2022 (AEST). Thanks to the international and hybrid model of this event, we hope you are able to join us from wherever you may be in the world!

The 2022 Global Summit is focused on UN SDG#3 Good Health and Well-being. It is a small but important step towards achieving the larger ambitious vision of creating a world free of hunger, poverty, and disease where all life can thrive. The Global Summit will raise awareness and support capacity building for the UN SDGs and their related thematic issues. Nanotechnology is a powerful tool that can be utilized to create a sustainable, healthy, and prosperous future. Through this Global Summit we hope all attendees will appreciate the opportunities that nanotechnology can provide along with understanding its limitations so that they can be addressed. The Global Summit will bring together people from all over the world who are interested in improving global health in terms of nanotechnology, sustainability, digital health, and equity, diversity & inclusion (ED&I).
