Abstract: This opening paper gives an overview of the topics covered in the 2nd International Symposium on Nanotechnology in Construction, which is centred on recent advances in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with a focus on materials and their impact in the Construction Sector. Experts from funding agencies from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chair of the Scientific Committee will kick off with a revision of the current situation and future perspectives of Nanotechnology in Construction. The rest of the lectures by other leading international scientists will be grouped by subject, so that we will begin with those related to theoretical modelling of construction materials, then deal extensively with the characterisation and measurement of properties of construction materials, and finally we will hear about construction material and product development from several of the key players from different industrial and research centres.
