The 5th Global Nanotechnology Congress and Expo is taking place on the 3-5 December in Valencia, Spain.

It is a symposium of keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations, hosting leading scientists from academia and industry worldwide, to discuss the latest developments in the field of Nanotechnology.

Many interesting perspectives will be explored throughout the three-days and will be focused on how science and technology of materials from nano to macro level are changing rapidly, providing a scenario of new opportunities and challenges.

On the first day, in the framework of the conference, a workshop was led by Lorenzo Pastrana on FODIAC project. The project was brought to the stage as a case study and example of nanotechnology developments in the field of Food. Specifically, Lorenzo presented how applied nanotechnology with complementary disciplines can be used to extract functional bioactive molecules to be integrated into a dietary solution to tackle diabetes and the associated impairment of the cognitive function among the elderly.
