PiezoNEMS 2013 was the first PiezoNEMS workshop series. It took place on November 14th 2013 in Grenoble and we have welcomed more than 80 participants from several EU countries including France, Germany, Belgium, United Kingdom, Poland, Italy.

This workshop aimed at providing an overview of the most recent advances in piezoresistive and piezoelectric nanosystems (NEMS). A broad range of subjects was covered, from materials science to basic physics and device applications.
