Minnesota nonprofit: States in upper Midwest must cooperate to land nanotech jobs
A Minnesota organization is behind a move to create a regional initiative that could bring nanotechnology research dollars and jobs to the upper Midwest.
The proposal aims to connect researchers and businesses and build an international nanotech reputation for the region. Dubbed NanoVox, the regional nanotech center would encompass Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, the Dakotas and perhaps Manitoba, Canada.
Nanotechnology is manufacturing on the molecular scale that often finds new uses for traditional materials. Hundreds of products — from clothing to food packaging to medical devices — already use nanotechnology.
