Abstract:
The California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), UCLA and MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology, University of Twente, signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) on September 14th.

MoU between California NanoSystems Institute, UCLA and MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, UT

The Netherlands | Posted on September 21st, 2010

This agreement unites two of the world's leading institutes of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Their combined intellectual and physical resources will focus on expanding understanding of the nature and behavior of phenomena at the nanolevel. Through joint research projects and educational exchanges CNSI and MESA+ will apply nanotechnology to problems of global concern in health and the environment. Special attention will be given to new materials, nanoelectronics, and medical diagnostic devices. Collaborative efforts will be undertaken to commercialize their research, moving it from the lab into the marketplace in order to maximize the economic and social benefits of discoveries and devices.

The MOU was signed by Prof. Paul Weiss, CNSI director, and Prof. Dave Blank, Scientific Director of MESA+ at a ceremony held at the University of Twente in conjunction with the MESA+ annual research conference. "This is an event of great importance for CNSI," observed Professor Weiss. "It provides access to a preeminent Dutch research institute and represents our first formal connection to facility located on the European continent. MESA+ is a highly respected center of nanoscience, known throughout the world for the quality of its research and its innovative approaches to technology transfer. CNSI will gain enormously from this link to MESA+."

Professor Blank expressed similar pleasure with the MOU. He noted the shared research agendas at MESA+ and CNSI. "We are both using nanotechnology to explore operations at the cellular level. Our discoveries will contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and viral diseases," he said. "This agreement will be a valuable means of generating collaborations among researchers and exchanges of graduate students. From these joint efforts are certain to flow discoveries and inventions having great social and economic value for the Netherlands and the United States and for the entire world."
