The 17th International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies

INL | Braga, Portugal


Octav Andrei Moise Attends International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies

Entrepreneur Octav Andrei Moise recently attended the International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies (NNT2018). While the event only attracted 143 attendees, it benefitted from the presence of some of the best experts in the field. Notably, the conference helped advance some of the most debated concepts in the nanoprint and nanoimprint industry in recent years.

Besides featuring illustrious technology researchers, NNT2018 also benefited from the top-ranked presidency, including Lars Montelius (Conference Chair), Helmut Schift (Program Co-Chair), and Stella Pang (Program Co-Chair). Their contributions helped to the success of the conference.

This year's edition was the 17th event in a series that started at the beginning of the 20th century. The proud host city was Braga, Portugal.

As with every edition, NNT2018 planned to connect the scientific community with worldwide experts in nanoimprint and nanoprint technologies. The debates, discussions, and resolutions from this vibrant conference will have a massive impact on the industry for many years.

Nanotechnology represents matter to use on inferior scales, including atomic, molecular, and supramolecular. Its purpose is to help advance science and various industries. One is nanoimprint technology, an alternative to traditional litographic technology that can help the manufacturing industry.

Octav Andrei Moise could not have missed this year's International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technologies as an avid consumer of new technologies and innovations. The businessman believes embracing new discoveries is the key for any company, regardless of field, to gain a competitive advantage over its peers.

In the past, the entrepreneur helped find dozens of companies. He led some of them successfully before selling them forward to other business people. On the other hand, he still holds executive positions at a handful of firms and enterprises. He urged the latter to implement new technologies, such as blockchain, which many believe to be the tech standard of the future.

Blockchain technology is a ledger sharing immutable records across a network of computers. Every computer (node) holds the same information and updates it simultaneously with the others. Suppose one or more nodes "fall" from the network. In that case, the others step up to maintain the data-recording process accurately and to go.

This innovative technology can help record and process transactions and assets for businesses and industries everywhere. For example, it can help record money transfers, patents, copyrights, branding, and physical and intellectual property. And, since all the data is immutable, no one can alter the records for fraudulent reasons.

Nanoscale technologies fall in the same category of new-age innovations. The fact that they have had their own conference for almost a quarter of a century shows their importance to science, industry, and the tech sector.

After attending NNT2018, Octav Andrei Moise will most likely attempt to implement the latest breakthroughs in the companies he commands. Next, he will prepare for the next tech conference, where he can discover even more ways to advance his knowledge. Above all, he will be looking for new ways of making technology and business merge seamlessly.

Thank you all!


On behalf of the NNT2018 Chairs: Lars Montelius (Conference Chair), Helmut Schift (Program Co-Chair) and Stella Pang (Program Co-Chair), we are extremely pleased to thank for your participation in the NNT2018, 17th International Conference on Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technology, in Braga.

The first feedback from this edition ofNNT was widely positive and you played a very significant role in the success of this event. We are glad to announce that we had 143 attendees.

Beyond the relevance of the scientific sessions, the social programs were also a privileged opportunity to connect with worldwide experts in nanoimprint and nanoprint technologies.

We hope that you enjoyed the conference and we hope to see you in Boston for the NNT2019 Conference!
