The sixth edition of Bangalore India Nano will be held from December 4 to 6 at The Lalit Ashok Hotel in the city.

The theme for this year’s event is Nano Horizons. Enterprises dealing with advanced materials, energy, electronics, agriculture, drug delivery and healthcare, safe drinking water and textiles will take part in the event.

The Department of IT, BT and S&T, along with the Vision Group on Nanotechnology, led by eminent scientist C N R Rao has decided to expand its horizons by rechristening Bangalore Nano as Bangalore India Nano.

Rao said,”Bangalore Nano has grown tremendously and it is no longer a regional event, but a national event. Hence we have renamed it as Bangalore India Nano.”

“Karnataka has always been a pioneer and has led the country in science. The future of Nano is very important and it is one of the most outstanding scientific fields. But proper research is needed,” he added. 

This year’s event will feature an exhibition and conference sessions which will be addressed by internationally acclaimed speakers and experts. They will be discussing a wide range of issues pertaining to research, technology development, skill requirement, institutions, risks issues, regulatory and  governance structure, collaborations between academia, R&D & industry.

There will also be a Pre-Conference Tutorial Session on December 4 for the delegates with a preview on latest trends in Nanotechnology. I S N Prasad, Principal Secretary to Government, Department of IT, BT and S&T said, “The Nanotechnology event has assumed a larger role for the industry and has gained significance globally. Hence, we are proud to rechristen the event as Bangalore India Nano.”

“The annual event will be a congregation of academia, research and industry featuring inspiring talks, high quality research papers and a platform to showcase innovative and ground-breaking nano-applications. India and more specifically, Karnataka will be a major influencer in the field of Nanotechnology in the next couple of years,” he said.


From this year, Rao and his wife Indumathi will present a special award to an eminent scientist. The Bangalore India Nano National Award will be presented during the event to a distinguished personality for significant achievements in the field of Nanotechnology. A special jury, headed by Rao, will select the winner.

A special programme ‘Nano for the Young’  is also being organised. Students from engineering, medicine and biotechnology can attend this special session.
