Tiny steps for science, a giant leap for industrial innovation – that is the promise nanotechnology holds. And that's the focus of a national conference at Purdue University in early February.
Building on October's opening of the $58 million Birck Nanotechnology Center at Discovery Park, Purdue will hold two national nanotechnology events on Feb. 6-8 on the West Lafayette campus. The three-day event is highlighted by a panel discussion kicking off Purdue's Discovery Lecture Series, titled "Transforming Society Through Emerging Technologies: National Nanotechnology Initiative at Five Years."
