TTNA joint briefing with Aussie Nanotechnology alliance

March 21, 2008 (Australia)

The Technical Textiles and Nonwoven Association (TTNA) is working closely with the Australian Nanotechnology Alliance (ANA), to offer TTNA members and guests this exciting, educational, networking event in Brisbane.

This is an opportunity for manufacturers and fabricators in Queensland to meet members of the TTNA, ANA and Future Materials at our first joint Executive Technology Update Series.

Date/Time: Thursday 17 April 2008, 5.00 – 7.30 pm

Venue : The University of Queensland, Australian Institute for Biotechnology & Nanotechnology

(AIBN) – Building 75, Cnr Coopers & College Roads (Brisbane)

Guest speakers for this event are:

Prof Robert Lamb
Science Director, The Australian Synchrotron

Dr Bill Humphries
Deputy Chief & Science Director, Textile & Fibre Technology—CSIRO

Modern textiles do so much more than clothe us.

Through applications of nanotechnology, scientists have devised fabrics that are water repellent, incorporate sensors that monitor health through to elite athletic performance, and even now offer the opportunity to generate electricity that will allow the recharging of our mobile phone or MP3 simply through physical movement.

Nanotechnology is revolutionising all aspects of our lives and through our two guest speakers, we will learn that traditional materials can now have much broader applications.
