NanoQuébec to receive $11 million in Quebec government funding

QUEBEC CITY, Canada | Posted on November 29th, 2007

In the long run, this funding will help consolidate Quebec's leadership
position in Canadian nanotechnology and create wealth in Quebec by
accelerating the development and adoption of nanotechnology in the province's
industrial sector.

"This funding from the government of Quebec will make it possible to
follow through on the ambitious business plan NanoQuébec released in the
spring of 2007," said NanoQuébec's Director General, Sylvain Cofsky. "We are
committed to making a significant contribution to Quebec's research and
innovation strategy, launched in 2006 by the government of Quebec. We plan to
do so by adopting a unifying approach, which will provide direction and focus
efforts on activities with very strong potential for innovation."

Mr. Sylvain Cofsky, NanoQuébec Director General; Mr. Edwin Bourget, vice
rector, research and creation, Université Laval; Mr. Jacques Beauvais, vice
rector, research, Université de Sherbrooke; and Mr. Jocelyn Vézina, President
and CEO of TSO3 will speak about the importance of nanotechnology development
for the Quebec economy and the strong attractiveness and integration of the
nanotechnology research infrastructure supported by NanoQuébec.
