Wilkommen to the sixth annual Stuttgart Workshop focusing on  the “applications and commercialization” of Engineered NanoCarbon Structures. This years Workshop will be held on the campus of the Max-Planck-Institut FKF (adjacent to Universität Stuttgart) in Stuttgart-Busnau: September 17th - 19th 2014.

News @ the Workshop...

The Stuttgart Workshop is organized by Verein zur Förderung der Stuttgart Nanodays:

Ivica Kolaric (Chair)  (,  David Carroll  (,  Georg Duesberg  (,  Siegmar Roth  (

In conjunction with our partners:

April 5, 2014: First Announcement of NanoDays 2014, Call for abstracts, Invitations to Speakers.

June 21, 2014: In keeping with our tradition of holding the workshop at different sites around Stuttgart, this year MPI-FKF has been chosen as the site for the 2014 Workshop.

August 15, 2014: Registration begins.  Registration will be open until all slots are filled.

It is broadly recognized that dimensionally engineered carbon nanomaterials such as: graphene, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and carbon foams may represent a key platform in emerging technologies.  But while basic scientific studies of these materials have matured, few applications of the materials have seen the marketplace.  The Stuttgart Workshops were established as a forum for discussion of the barriers to commercial success of dimensionally engineered NanoCarbon.  This forum brings together thought leaders from academia, government, and industry for a focussed discussion on these barriers with the ultimate goal of enhancing teaming and cooperative opportunities between disciplines that may lead to successful commercial pathways.

All attendees at the Stuttgart Workshops are encouraged to reach beyond the typical “spectator” status of most conferences and adopt a forward leaning “participant” mode of thinking by taking an active role in the discussions, panels, poster sessions, and hallway coffee chats.  At the Stuttgart Workshops, you can find your voice and challenge others to do the same. You can engage with others that share your passion for the field and find new collaborators to join you in your journeys.
