NanoBusiness Alliance Becomes the NANOBUSINESS COMMERCIALIZATION ASSOCIATION, Reflecting Focus on Business of Nanotechnology

Shelton, CT | Posted on March 31st, 2011

As billions of dollars of new nanotechnology-enabled goods enter the marketplace, the name change represents a move into a new era in which a decade of intense scientific research will give way to fundamentally new products that will likely change the way we live, work and play.

"Our vision for the new NanoBusiness Commercialization Association is clear and focused, as we seek to ensure that the United States is a global leader in the still burgeoning field of nanotechnology," said Vincent Caprio, Executive Director, NanoBusiness Commercialization Association. "We are creating a vibrant and interactive community whereby our members can share information with us, and we can in turn inform policymakers, researchers, analysts, the financial community, and other interested parties."

In tandem with the name change, the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association has refined its mission, with a dedication to:

Promoting the commercialization of products designed and developed through the science of nanotechnology
Advocating continued US spending through the National Nanotechnology Initiative. America must continue funding of NNI from R&D to commercialization.
Informing membership in regard to EHS regulation from Federal (EPA and FDA) and State governments, along with monitoring proposed legislation.
In a related announcement, the Association has named Advisory Board member Steve Waite as its new Director of Strategy and Research, to assist with these initiatives.
