NSTI Announces Nanotech 2008 Has Expanded the Special Nano Industrial Impact Tutorials and Workshops

Boston, MA | Posted on April 23rd, 2008

Nanotech 2008 announced it has expanded its Nano Industrial Impact Workshops to fourteen special short courses. NSTI Nanotech is bringing together the world's leading nanotechnology experts in a one-day intensive program to educate participants in the current state of the art in a range of nanotechnologies and impacted industries. The courses will be held June 1 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Mass.

"We've seen a tremendous growth in Nano Industrial Impact Workshops this year," said Dr. Bart Romanowicz, Executive Director of the Nano Science & Technology Institute. "These introductory - to intermediate - level courses are great for managers, practicing engineers, industrial scientists, and executives seeking strategic planning insight. This year's program not only looks at some of the hottest topics in nanotechnology, but also the industrial areas that may be most heavily impacted."
