About #NME21

 NME21 is a unique online conference in Europe bringing together scientists, technology providers, entrepreneurs, industry and clinicians, all of them developing great medical applications of Nanotechnologies and emerging MedTech.

Scientific lectures on Nanomedicine & sessions about translation to market of nanomedical products will be held in parallel.

After the great success of NME19 held in Braga, Portugal in 2019, NME21 is co-organized by the ETPN and Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology. We are proud to present Kantonsspital St.Gallen and the University of St.Gallen as co-hosts.

NME21 was designed to be hosted by Olma Messen, the  largest meeting place in Eastern Switzerland in which trade fairs, congresses and cultural events bring together around 800,000 people per year. Following the latest developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, NME21 goes fully virtual!

A warm Welcome to NME21

On behalf of the organizing team of Empa and partners, I am very pleased to welcome you all to the NanoMed Europe 2021 Conference in Switzerland, in the area of Lake of Constance, at the historical town St. Gallen.

The current situation illustrates very clearly that diseases and in this case, infection diseases have a tremendous impact on our society, economy and social environment. It shows also, that only interdisciplinary approaches, close collaborative exchanges between scientists, clinicians as well as the industry can address and hopefully overcome such a pandemic crisis.

NanoMed Europe is designed to motivate and foster interactions, networking, and enabling work in partnerships to seek for solutions to societal challenges of present times. The European Nanomedicine research community has a large tradition for collaborative work, is bridging to next key enabling technologies and is implementing it, to address and as long-term vision, cure diseases.

It is my great pleasure to be the Chair of  NME21, to host you all for an exciting meeting giving you the best possible platform for your presentations, debates and dynamism and wish us a fruitful conference, a memorable visit to Empa and an enjoyable stay in St. Gallen.


Dr. Peter Wick

Head Particles-Biology Interactions, Empa

Dear ETPN members, dear Nanomedicine colleagues,
The European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) is happy to invite you to the next edition of NanoMedEurope, NME21, which this time will visit St. Gallen, a historical town in the Northeast of Switzerland. ETPN organizes the NME21 in close collaboration with our local host from EMPA under the lead of Peter Wick.

In these challenging times, it is important to have new adventures to look forward to and create European meeting places for interdisciplinary collaborations between academics, clinicians, and industry to address emerging health challenges. NME21 will be a unique place in Europe to meet scientists, companies, agencies, EC officers with interest in nanomedicine development. We will motivate, foster, and showcase great science, enable networking, create new partnerships and brainstorm about the industrial expansion of Nanomedicine, all in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere.

NME 21 will have a mix of key invited presentations and possibilities for you to present your projects in addition to a lot of networking in breaks and social events. We look forward to seeing you all in St. Gallen at NME21!

Dr. Ruth Schmid

Chair of the Executive Board, ETPN
