The 1st Volkswagen Foundation's Herrenhausen Conference took place from December, 12 – 14, 2012 in Hanover, Germany.

The first Herrenhausen Conference "Downscaling Science" wanted to address the following questions: Which opportunities does nanoscience provide for tackling global challenges? Which are the limits and limitations of this rather new field of research? And which barriers need to be overcome in order to further develop nanoscience?

Speakers were George M. Whitesides (Harvard University), Nobel Laureate Harold Kroto (Florida State University) and Stefan Hell (MPI for biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen), amongst others.
