Recent years have seen widespread efforts to understand the mechanisms of friction and tribology in micrometric structures (mesoscale) down to the realm of atoms and molecules (nanoscale), with the ultimate goal of controlling friction, adhesion and wear by design. This research has generated an interdisciplinary scientific area, nanotribology, with great potential impact on technology and everyday life. Applications include safety, economy, life quality, energy and material saving, toward a sustainable development. Europe has a strong scientific nanotribology community encompassing physics, materials science, chemistry, earth and life sciences, and including academic and industrial research alike. This community has been expanding and collaborating for the past decades. Since 2014 COST Action MP1303 is providing an official framework for a widespread and efficient networking. The present workshop provides a crucial occasion to develop this network.

There is no registration fee for the registered participants.
