TC activities are dedicated to disseminate nanosensors design, construction and testing within the Italian chapter and beyond too. It allows to organize and support scientific activities notably research, projects and teaching. The TC is also connected to IEEE IMS TC34 ( for joint activities in particular for nanofim events. TC activities are oriented to diverse fields of application requiring nanosensors as instance biomedical, environmental, and industrial.

Nanomaterials are not only used for nanosensor devices but also for enhancing capacities of complex nanosensing systems; for example as contrast agents and reacting elements.
