Nano-Network and NanoBusiness Alliance Partner to Host 2007 Nano App Summit
CLEVELAND, OH and CHICAGO, IL | Posted on July 17th, 2007
The Nano-Network and NanoBusiness Alliance, today announced they will partner to host the 2007 Nano App Summit, a premier applications-focused nanotechnology event, to be held in Cleveland, Ohio October 22-25. The Summit will address industry-specific commercialization opportunities and challenges in Automotive, CleanTech, and Defense sectors. Complete event information can be found online at http://www.nanoappsummit.com
The Nano App Summit made its debut in Cleveland in 2005 with a focus on nanotechnology applications in the aerospace, automotive and consumer products industries. The event was an overwhelming success, attracting over 300 attendees, from international locations as far away as Singapore, Taiwan, Israel and the United Kingdom.
This year, the Nano-Network and Nano Business Alliance aim to build on the momentum of the 2005 event, by connecting leaders at the forefront of nanotechnology who are developing cutting edge, next-generation nanotechnology products and solutions. At the Summit, major manufacturers, leading nanotechnology product developers, and industry experts will share product enhancements, insight on current market demands, commercialization opportunities and much more. Over 400 business leaders, investors, venture capitalists, scientists, engineers and government officials are expected to attend the 2007 Nano App Summit.
Confirmed speakers for the 2007 Nano App Summit include CEOs and CTOs of public and private companies, IP professionals, government officials, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, innovators, and industry thought leaders.
"We are pleased to be working with the NanoBusiness Alliance to host the 2007 Nano App Summit. The organization has a strong track record of helping to accelerate the commercialization of nanotechnology innovations and establishing nanotechnology industry networks. Their support and involvement will complement the Nano Network's strengths, and together we can ensure an extensive and exciting program," said Alexis Abramson, Ph.D, Executive Director of the Nano-Network.
"Nanotechnology's bottom line is all about applications. Without a way to apply nanotechnology to a specific product or create a solution, then it's just chemistry. The business of applying this science to a product to enhance its market proposition is the true value of nanotechnology. The Nano App Summit is dedicated to exploring and highlighting nanotechnology applications and the Nano Business Alliance is proud to co-host this conference," said Sean Murdock, Executive Director of the Nano Business Alliance.
The 2007 Nano App Summit is part of a five day series of activities during Nano Week in Cleveland, October 22-26. Stay tuned to http://www.nano-network.org for more details about Nano Week.
The Nano-Network was formed by scientists, entrepreneurs and financiers to improve and expand nanotechnology research and commercialization activities and capacities in Northeast Ohio, and throughout the nation. The Nano-Network is one of the largest and best-known privately funded, "grass roots" nanotechnology organizations in the United States. The Nano-Network is currently managed by NorTech ( http://www.nortech.org ), a regional economic development organization focused on innovation, technology and entrepreneurship in Northeast Ohio. NorTech's relationship with the Nano-Network provides the group with structure, contacts and resources to further promote nanotechnology in Ohio and the United States.
