The largest annual event in
the field of advanced materials
and energy solutions
What is NAUM all about?

The Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit is an annual event in the nanoaugmented materials industry. The Summit was born as a result of advanced materials manufacturers and experts wanting to get together to share their specialist knowledge to develop the technology.

Another essential NAUM’19 topic is the auto industry, which is currently undergoing a technology revolution in terms of power sources and materials that is driving dramatic changes in other related industries.

Join us in Kyoto and find out what the future will be made of!

Location
Kyoto International Conference Center

The Kyoto ICC is a place of historical significance. It was here that the task of reducing global CO2 emissions was first outlined and formalized in the Kyoto Protocol on December 11, 1997.

The choice of this venue for NAUM’19 is symbolic: today the use of graphene nanotube-based materials and products is one of the most effective ways to reduce global energy consumption.
