Abstract:
A RUSNANO delegation headed by CEO Anatoly Chubais will visit Sweden on November 19-20, 2009 to study the support that government offers for innovative developments, share with Sweden's business and scientific communities the goals and principles that guide RUSNANO's activities and discuss opportunities to collaborate in commercialization of nanotechnologies with their Swedish counterparts.

RUSNANO to Study Sweden’s Government-Supported Nanotechnology Industry

Russia | Posted on November 19th, 2009

The agenda for the visit begins with trips to several nanotechnology companies in the Stokholm-Upsala region: Gammadata Group, Scienta, Acreo, and Micronic Laser Systems. Later Mr. Chubais will meet with Minister of Trade of Sweden Ewa Björling and take part in a seminar at the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences to which representatives of Sweden's business community and government organizations engaged in investigation, use, and commercialization of nanotechnologies have also been invited. During the seminar, Anatoly Chubais will make a presentation on the activities of RUSNANO.

On November 20 the delegation will divide into two groups, one visiting nanotechnology businesses in Malmo and the other in Goteborg. The group headed by Mr. Chubais will visit Malmo's Nanometer Structure Consortium—developers of technology for production of semiconducting nanothreads and one-dimensional semiconductors—as well as the following companies: GLO, Sol Voltaics, Obducat, and Beacon. The group traveling to Goteborg will visit Nanofactory Instruments, Cellectricon, Smoltek, Midorion, and Promimic.

About RUSNANO
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) was established in 2007 by the Federal law № 139-FZ to enable Government policy in the field of Nanotechnology.

To accomplish this task, RUSNANO co-invests in nanotechnology industry projects that have high commercial potential or social benefit. Early-stage investment by RUSNANO lowers the risk of its investment partners from the private sector.

RUSNANO participates in building nanotechnology infrastructure, which includes the nanotechnology centers of excellence, business incubators and early stage investment funds. RUSNANO provides scientific and educational programs that are required for its investment projects to succeed, and also supports the popularization of nanoscience and nanotechnology. RUSNANO selects promising spheres for investment based on longer-term foresight created by the leading Russian and world experts.

To assist the Russian nanotechnology industry advance to the global market and strengthening of its international links RUSNANO develops partnerships with the leading nanotechnology centers in the world and organizes the annual Nanotechnology International Forum in Russia.
