October lineup includes ‘Nano-APP Summit’ and $150,000 business idea competition
Organizers are again expecting hundreds of scientists, researchers and entrepreneurs to gather here October 17-21 for the second annual NANO Week. Demonstrating a shift away from last year's focus on medical applications for nanotechnology, this year's event will spotlight the ways nanotechnology is being used to develop commercial products. Among the programs slated for that week is a revamped business idea competition that will award $150,000 in prizes to winners from the international and North Coast communities.
The Nano Network, a consortium of nanotechnology-minded scientists, entrepreneurs and supporting agencies in Northeast Ohio is the organizer of NANO Week.
"Nanotechnology is moving out of research labs and onto the factory floor and into consumer products," said Chris Mather, executive director of the Nano Network and associate director of NorTech. "Those products range from golf balls that fly farther to lighter, stronger metals used in automobiles and airplanes. The goal of NANO Week is to highlight these new products and demonstrate that nanotechnology is making possible the next generation of innovative materials and products."
The schedule for NANO Week includes:
"The wide variety of programs that constitute NANO Week demonstrate how pervasive nanotechnology is becoming in our society," said Mark Brandt, co-founder of the Nano Network and managing partner of the Maple Fund, a venture fund that invests in technology companies emerging from college campuses. "Cleveland is well positioned to play a pivotal role in the commercialization of products that incorporate nanotechnology, and NANO Week will highlight that fact."
