US-Ireland R&D Partnership to Target Nanotechnology
Predictions for Nanotechnology enabled products suggest a £700bn ($1 trillion) global industry by 2010. The island of Ireland is at the leading edge in many areas of research, particularly in healthcare and information technology that will be impacted by this growth in the next decade.
Over the next two days, Belfast is the location for a major Nanotechnology conference involving leading research and industry experts from the US, Ireland and Northern Ireland exploring advances in nanobiotechnology, spintronics-nanomagnetism, nanoscale computation and self-assembly of nanomaterials aimed at the electronics, communications technology and biotech industries.
