Konstantin Novoselov, a Russian-born scientist who won this year's Nobel Prize for Physics, on Monday attended an international nanotechnology forum in Moscow.

Third International Nanotechnology Forum RUSNANOTECH 2010 gathered leading scientists and businessmen in Moscow's Expocentre exhibition complex on Monday

"I've never attended such events before, so I wonder what would come out of it," the Nobel Prize winner said. "We [scientists] usually stew in our own juice, but we must communicate with engineers and investors to put our ideas into practice."

Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who both work for universities in Britain, won the Nobel Prize for Physics last month, for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene, which is a form of carbon.
