The purpose of the FM&NT- NIBS 2022 is to bring together scientists, students, companies, industry representatives, and experts from research institutes, universities, business stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region and beyond to share latest achievements in research, innovative solutions and applications promoting international co-operation, stimulating research and innovation of various functional materials and nanotechnologies, which in future could become high-added value products and devices.

The following topics will be included in this joined conference:
Nanomaterials and technologies: Theory and modelling, progressive methods, technologies and design for production, investigation of nano: particles, tubes, composites, core-shell structures; 3-D printing, thin films and coatings

Functional Materials: Theory and modelling, functional (inorganic, organic and hybrid) materials for electronics and photonics

Green Energy and Environment: Theory and modelling, perspective materials and technologies for harvesting and storage of renewable energy: hydrogen, fuel cells, batteries, photovoltaics, piezoelectric, thermoelectric, LED and OLEDs, and developing of diverse energy systems.

Bioengineering materials and biotechnologies: Theory and modelling, biomaterials, micro and nanobiotechnology, biopolymers, applications in bioengineering, biomedical engineering and technology.
