Nanotech meets big business
Some of the UK's up and coming nanotechnology firms met industry giants in London on 27 November, as the UK government sought to marry up local innovators with international business partners.
The UK NanoForum formed part of a week-long nanotechnology matchmaking event, organised by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI). The event also showcased nanotech activities and facilities in Cambridge, Oxford and the West Midlands.
Delegates from 30 international universities and companies - including Samsung Electronics of South Korea, Italy's Pirelli Labs, and Indian firm Tata Chemicals - attended the forum, which ran for the first time last year.
'The aim is to take people we think are likely to form useful collaborations with UK industry and universities, and to show them our science and nanotechnology capabilities,' said UKTI spokesman James Clements.
