The British Carbon Group (BCG) is pleased to announce this year's NanotecC conference, the flagship nanocarbon conference of the BCG.

NanoteC is one of the longest running series of international nanoscale carbon conferences in Europe (since 1998). It brings together scientists working with nanoscale carbon materials: nanotubes, graphene, diamond - and fullerene-related nanostructures. While each of these materials attracts its own dedicated community of researchers, NanoteC draws on common themes and allows researchers to share insight into the unique element of nanoscale.

This year NanoteC will be in Nantes, on the west coast of France. The weekend the conference finishes, there is a huge free jazz festival with stages across Nantes (from classic to modern) - the perfect opportunity to relax after intense and interesting scientific discussions!


Day 1 - 30th August to 2nd September 2017
