Functional nanomaterials have gained momentum in its R&D and application since the 1990’s. Up to now, they have seen wide use in a breadth of fields such as chemical catalysis, photoelectric magnetic materials, biomedicine, separation and purification and environmental health, etc. and even have a revolutionary impact on various fields of traditional industries. To utilize the function of competition platforms in integrating innovation resources and capabilities of the functional nanomaterials industry in China, the Organizing Committee of CHInano Conference & Expo, together with Suzhou Institute of Advanced Microsphere Materials Application Technology, holds the "China Innovation and Entrepreneurship Contest on Functional Nanomaterials 2021", with the aim of improving the industrial innovation efficiency, enhancing the independent innovation capability and smoothing the docking and transformation channels of innovation capability to facilitate the landing of high-quality entrepreneurial projects, the transformation of scientific and technological achievements and the harmonized development of large and small enterprises and thus enable excellent enterprises and innovative products stand out faster.
CIECFN is a contest mainly for enterprises and groups in the industrial chain of functional nanomaterials in the fields of health, such as R&D, preparation, mass production and application, etc. with the goal of selecting a number of high-quality start-ups and innovative projects through the competition platform, and enabling them to gain market recognition faster through investment and market docking so as to realize leapfrog development.
