Nanoco Technologies present a flagship example of the UKs ability to transform world-class research into cutting edge business

Manchester, UK | Posted on December 7th, 2007

Michael presented a case study on Nanoco Technologies showing how the company and its patented nanotechnology platform have grown from a University of Manchester spin-out to become an independent company enabling the quantum dot market and competing in the global marketplace to be the quantum dot supplier of choice for all application developers.
Nanoco solves the problem of scale manufacturing of quantum dots and leads the world in semi-conductor nanomaterials with a focus on next generation, heavy metal free quantum dots.

"We make strategic partnerships with global application developers and have substantive co-development contracts in place", said Michael Edelman, "Support from UKTI has been key to our success. I was delighted to be asked to speak at this international nanotechnology conference, a great platform to show our strengths and to acknowledge the support that UKTI have given to help get us where we are in the global marketplace."

The UK NanoForum was attended by over 350 delegates from over 22 countries.
Other UK companies presenting case studies included QinetiQ, Oxonica and NanoSight.
