Consortium Members work with the Army to address military and commercial needs

The Nano Valley Consortium Holds Its Kick-Off Meeting on October 18th

Swainsboro, GA | Posted on September 11th, 2007

The National Nanotechnology Manufacturing Center announces the Kick-Off Meeting of its Nano Valley Consortium on October 18th at Flat Creek Lodge in Swainsboro, GA. It will be a full day meeting and followed by the Center's Fall Symposium on the 19th. Both members and non-members are invited allowing prospective members to learn more about the Consortium. Registration is available online at

The Consortium is comprised of large and small companies, academics, and government agencies and organizations that work together to identify, develop, manage, and implement nanotechnology projects that benefit both military and commercial markets. Its primary "customer" is ARDEC - the lead Research, Development, and Engineering Center (RDEC) for the Army and it provides the Consortium's interface to Army needs.

The Nano Valley Consortium is unique in that it is the only organization of its type focused solely on nanotechnology needs for military and commercial markets. A Consortium is an entity recognized by the Department of Defense and provides the opportunity for the Department to share in commercialization resource needs, costs, and risks with member companies, universities, and other government organizations.

The Consortium is not intended as a social network, but rather as a project-focused group with specific objectives and measured outcomes. Membership offers the opportunity to work with others for early access to research and/or early transitioning of technology resulting in rapid market entry, leverage research investment, greater access to facilities and equipment, and broader testing and evaluation capabilities.

Flat Creek Lodge has become the Center's preferred meeting venue due to its eclectic environment and well-suited meeting facilities. It is located about an hour's drive from the Savannah or Augusta airports and well worth the trip.
