Nano2hybrids logoNano2Hybrids: An Introduction to the Project
This film gives a short introduction to an EU funded research project called Nano2hybrids.  The project involves 8 partners looking for new ways to use nanotechnology to detect gases.  Further information on this project can be found under our research section or via the links to the project`s own website where the scientists themselves post their own video diaries.
The EU Diversity Project: Science and Society

In January 2009 a new EU project looking at ways of improving gender diversity in materials science was started.  In particular the project is looking at ways of strengthening and encouraging the number of women material scientists in decision making/management positions. 


WomenInNano logoWomen in Nanotechnology (WomenInNano): A Short Documentary

The Women in Nanotechnology project (WomenInNano) was a 3 year EU Research Project with the aim of finding out ways to support and encourage women working in Nanotechnology.  In 2008 the Vega Science Trust was asked to make a short film documenting the final meeting to illuminate the work of the project and record the conclusions of the project.
