Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society
San Diego, CA | July 25, 2005
Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" - http://www.scienceandsociety.net - announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 7/27/05, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.
Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:
- Neil Gordon, President, Canadian Nanobusiness Alliance: Neil Gordon is President of the Canadian NanoBusiness Alliance and specializes in nanotechnology commercialization and global initiatives. He is heading the establishment of a nanofabrication center that will be offering prototyping services and low volume production for nanoscale devices that make use of low cost polymer substrates instead of silicon, such as biosensors, lab-on-a-chip, solar panels, and OLED displays. As a nanotechnology business consultant, he has worked with various government agencies, investors, start-ups, and business units in large companies throughout the world in diverse industries. Mr. Gordon has a Bachelor's degree in Metallurgical Engineering from McGill University, an MBA from the University of Western Ontario, and 22 years of business experience in management consulting, information technologies, aerospace and defense, and engineering sectors.
Mr. Gordon also heads the commercialization initiative of CANEUS, a NASA-led effort between multiple government agencies in the U.S. and allied countries and the private sector, to develop standards, prototypes, and collaborative investments in Micro and Nano Technologies (MNTs) for aerospace and defense applications. He is also on the Advisory Board of the Nanotechnology Opportunity Report and the World NanoEconomic Congress, and is regularly interviewed as a nanotechnology industry analyst. Mr. Gordon was a Runner-up as Nanotechnology Advocate in Nanotechnology Now’s "Best of Nanotechnology 2003" Awards.
The Canadian NanoBusiness Alliance (CNBA) is involved in developing major nanotechnology initiatives throughout the world. With an extensive network of nanotechnology leaders in business, science, finance, and politics, CNBA offers leadership and know-how for establishing commercial-oriented nanotechnology programs. CNBA has recently launched NIL Fab, which provides prototyping services and low volume production of leading edge devices with nanoscale dimensions on low cost polymer. Other initiatives include CANEUS, and an international clean water initiative that makes use of nanotechnology and other advanced technologies.
With its headquarters in Canada, CNBA is committed to establishing nanotechnology activities in Canada and promoting Canadian capabilities worldwide. With the absence of a National Nanotechnology Initiative in Canada, CNBA is a leading advocate for the establishment of a Canadian NNI. CNBA has created a collective voice for Canada’s emerging nanotechnology sector and distributes regular information to approximately 1600 people. Its advisory board includes Canada’s leading nanotechnology business and regional pioneers. CNBA has offices in Toronto and Montreal.
