INASCON started in 2007 in Denmark, and from the beginning, the objective has been to gather students from all over Europe to offer a unique opportunity to network and promote the careers of young scientists.

This year INASCON returns to Denmark on August 11 to August 14. The conference will offer several scientific activities to give students in the field of nanoscience an opportunity to network and collaborate with international students and scientists, increase scientific awareness and enhance presentational skills.

The conference programme includes talks by attending students and leading international scientists, a poster session, a workshop, a laboratory tour at the newly built iNANO house in Aarhus and of course social activities to get to know the other attendants.

This website will continuously be updated with all news and information regarding INASCON 2014. If you have any questions, requests or ideas for INASCON 2014, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We are looking forward to seeing you in Denmark for the eighth INASCON!
