The 22nd edition of the Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference (TNT2022) is being launched following the overwhelming success of earlier Nanotechnology Conferences. TNT2022 will take place in Tirana (Albania) for the 2nd year in a row in particular to launch a new conference series denominated nanoBalkan.
This high-level scientific meeting TNT series aims to present a broad range of current research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology as well as related policies or other kind of initiatives such as nanoAlb. TNT events have demonstrated that they are particularly effective in transmitting information and establishing contacts among workers in this field.
The TNT2022 structure will keep the fundamental features of the previous editions, providing a unique opportunity for broad interaction.
On the occasion of TNT2022 several specific sessions on hot topics will be organised: "Graphene and 2DM" one-day Symposium, Meet Editors of Biosensors and Bioelectronics journal, Future projects/Networking, etc.

The Phantoms Foundation is a Professional Conference Organiser specialised in the planning and execution of conferences and online meetings focused on Nanoscience & Nanotechnology and in particular “Graphene and 2DM”. The Phantoms Foundation, a non-profit organisation, is a key actor in structuring and fostering European Excellence and enhancing collaborations in these fields, giving as well high level management profile to National and European scientific projects (Involved in 11 European projects in the last 10 years either as coordinator or partner) and providing an innovative platform for dissemination, transfer and transformation of basic nanoscience knowledge, strengthening interdisciplinary research in nanoscience and nanotechnology by catalysing collaboration among international research groups.
Currently, one of its main core activities is to organize International conferences, meetings and workshops in particular in the “Graphene and 2D Materials” area:
The Institut Catala de Nanociencia I Nanotecnologia (ICN2) is a flagship research institute within the CERCA network of centres created and supported by the Autonomous Government of Catalonia to raise Catalan science to the premier international level. The patrons of ICN2 are the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat), the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). Its core activities are Frontier Basic and Applied Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Technology Transfer, and Public Outreach. Currently, ICN2 numbers some 200 staff from over 30 countries, of which about 170 are researchers. In addition to the theoretical and experimental groups involved in the project, ICN2´s activities in graphene include thermal management, photovoltaic, biosensors and energy applications, gathering about 40 researchers (permanent staff, postdoc and Ph.D. students). ICN2 achievements were recognised in 2014 with the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence accreditation, the most prestigious award targeting research centres in Spain.
