This is an international symposium where we want to bring researchers from both academic and industrial organisations on a single platform. Research in nanotechnology has been going on for the last 25 years with multi-billion dollars investment from public, private and venture capitalists. Now is the right time for academic researchers to discuss with the industrial organisations to come up with an exploitation plan and future strategy for the ultimate goal i.e. benefit for the society. This symposium aims to discuss three major thematic areas under “nano” such as (i) Nano-energy/environmental for better society; (ii) Nano-medicine for health & diagnostics and (iii) Nano-catalysis for green technology. Themes 1 and 3 will be published (contract preparation stage) as a special issue in Material Today: Proceedings (http://www.materialstoday.com/proceedings/) by Elsevier and theme 2 will be published as a special issue in “Nanomedicine” (http://www.futuremedicine.com/loi/nnm) by Future medicine.
