Nanotechnology Commercialization: Where Are We Now?

Washington, DC and Portland, OR | Posted on March 27th, 2007

Under Secretary for Technology Robert C. Cresanti, in conjunction with United States Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI), will convene a roundtable to examine both the promise and the barriers to nanotechnology commercialization on Tuesday, April 3, at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in Portland, Ore.

At the roundtable, titled "Nanotechnology Commercialization: Where Are We Now?" participants from large and small companies, start-up companies emerging from university research, the venture capital community, and state and local government will share their insights and experience on the commercialization of nanotechnology and how they can work together to overcome the barriers.

Since initiating the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative in 2001, the federal government has invested more than $5 billion in nanotechnology research. For FY 2008, President Bush has proposed $1.4 billion for nanotechnology research, a three-fold increase since 2001. State governments and the private sector have invested billions as well, yet potential barriers may impede further commercialization and potential benefits.

Who: United States Senator Ron Wyden
Under Secretary of Commerce for Technology Robert C. Cresanti
ONAMI President and Executive Director Robert D. "Skip" Rung

What: Roundtable, titled "Nanotechnology Commercialization: Where Are We Now?"

When: Tuesday, April 3, 2007, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m.
