Prof. C.N.R. Rao calls for freedom to Scientists and Researchers in Nano Space

BANGALORE, INDIA | Posted on December 7th, 2007

"The Indian researchers can make any Nano-materials at any form required but the biggest challenge lies in assembling of these Nano-materials. We are still looking at technologies to assemble these Nano-materials to make final commercial products. There is a huge demand for Nano-materials globally. India should be ideally catering to this global demand in the years to come", said Mr. Rao.

Also at the function Sulaiman Mohammed Alfadul, Saudi Arabia, Malay D Shah, Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Pharmacy, Pune, Bharat B. Kale, C-MET, Pune, Amrita Singh, IISc, Bangalore were felicitated for their posters presented at the Bangalore Nano. More than 50 posters were presented during the 2 days of Bangalore Nano 2007.

More than 500 students from 23 engineering & medical colleges across the Bangalore were addressed by Prof. C.N.R Rao at a special session on Nanotechnology. Prof. Rao shared with them the key aspects of Nanotechnology and the excitement that lies in Nano research. The students were showed a 30 minute video on Nanotechnology made at the JNCASR.

At the RICH Conference session, 19 presenters from different companies, institutes, and various laboratories from across the country showcased their platform and technology to a diverse audience which included Industry Stalwarts, Entrepreneurs, Venture Capitalists, Researchers etc. This is the first initiative in the world for research and industry community concerned to Nanotechnology to conduct business meetings.

"The first edition of Bangalore Nano received tremendous response and support. The second edition will happen in Dec 2008 under the guidance of Prof. Rao. The state Govt. has already allocated a larger fund for this. The next edition would be much larger in scale", said Mr. M N Vidhyashankar, Secretary Department of IT, BT and Science & Technology, Karnataka Government.
