welcome to Stockholm
Significant advancement in precision engineering and nanotechnology has been borne from inventions and technologies pioneered in Sweden. Names such as Celsius, Johansson and Wingquist support such a view.
Likewise Sweden’s high technology industry relies on progress made within these fields. Many Swedish companies excel in sectors relevant to euspen such as aerospace, automotives, bearings, cutting tools, medical devices, micro-electronics and telecoms.
It is fitting therefore that euspen, the leading European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology, is taking its 12th International meeting to Sweden and its beautiful capital city. With its wonderful architecture and archipelago Stockholm is often referred to as “the Venice of the North”. Whilst an ultra modern city, it also presents historical palaces, buildings and museums that befit a European capital city.
This meeting and exhibition will again provide a unique opportunity for industrialists and academics to review the best of world-wide industrial innovation, state-of-the-art research and technology developments. Delegates will gain an insight to Sweden's unique mix of advanced technologies, business activities and science achievements.
euspen, together with our local hosts from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, will ensure you become acquainted with some Swedish cuisine, history and enjoy Stockholm’s special ambience.
We very much look forward to meeting with you there.

Energy efficiency is one of the most used words in these days. Efficient power plants and efficient energy application in machines, ships, cars, airplanes, trains, et cetera are significantly dependent on precision engineering, in design, as well as in manufacturing, and maintenance.
Efficiency in medical treatment, especially in aging societies is another concern in these days. Here new miniaturized technologies for analysis, drug delivery, surgery and implants are heavily based on micro and nano engineering and on precision engineering. These topics ask for further development, progress and cooperation in the fields covered by euspen, the European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology.
The 12th euspen International Conference offers information on latest developments, reports and discussion on progress, and room for starting and continuing international cooperation between researchers and industrialists.
It is my pleasure to invite you to this meeting in Stockholm on behalf of the euspen Council.
Dr. Wolfgang Knapp
euspen Vice President
