COMS2012 is the 17th annual conference on commercializing micro- and nanotechnology and takes place on June 24th - 27th 2012 at Tønsberg, Vestfold, Norway.

COMS brings together leaders from all over the world and every sector of industry, from high tech companies, national labs, regional development and government agencies, investment and consulting groups, market researchers, educators and students, all sharing, learning and creating partnerships in an open interactive setting. This is a powerful environment focused on accelerating commercialization activity among established and emerging micro and nano businesses.

COMS focuses primarily on entrepreneurship and marketable solutions, not just science and technology. It is a hands on, practical meeting to assist you in bringing your products to market, finding new customers, or the perfect development partner.

COMS will provide you with the latest information on technology transfer, manufacturing processes, facilities, infrastructure, investment, applications and markets, as well as covering regulatory issues, social implications, education and workforce development. Meet with decision makers & qualified buyers from every sector in an atmosphere designed for business development.

For 2012 the conference focus mainly on harsh environments. The theme reflects both the media and conditions that micronanosystems and products need to endure, but also in a transferred context the challenges and opportunities that exist in these financially turbulent times.

Most of all, COMS 2012 is about learning, experience sharing and networking.  The conference will address lessons learned as well as discuss new possibilities and “the next big thing”.
