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.

In 2016, INASCON will be hosted in Baarlo and Enschede, The Netherlands. The conference will take place from August 2nd to August 5th 2016 and will offer a variety of 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 program includes talks by attending students and leading international scientists, a poster session, a workshop, 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 2016. If you have any questions, requests or ideas concerning INASCON 2016, please do not hesitate to contact us at or on our Facebook group. In any case, stay tuned for future updates!
