After decades of intense research, functional nanomaterials are now an integral part of many applications and attract the attention of a large research community. Intrinsically multi-disciplinary, research activities are spanning from engineering, physics, metrology and chemistry to biology and medicine. Likewise, current applications may differ from contrast agents for medical imaging to touch screens for mobile phones.

The scope of this Workshop is to cover the principles and applications of local scale measurement techniques  such as Atomic Force Microscopy (and techniques based on it, e.g. Piezoresponse Force Microscopy, Kelvin Force Probe Microscopy etc.) and HR-(S)TEM for nanomaterials research and provides a forum for presenting and discussing new results.

The workshop is organized in frame of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange program, projects TRANSFERR and FUNCOAT projects (Grant agreement: 778070 and 823942).
