Over the last decade, the nanotechnology field has turned the corner from science fiction to multi-billion dollar business, rapidly becoming the center of the materials science field, and has made major game-changing innovations in clean energy, electronics and biotechnology.

"We are very pleased to be teaming with COIN on this exciting event," noted Vincent Caprio www.vincentcaprio.org, Executive Director of the NanoBCA. He added, "North Carolina is a hotbed for nanotechnology, particularly in the biotechnology sector. There are over 40 NanoBio companies located in North Carolina with leading research undertaken at Duke, UNC, NC State, Wake Forest and the region's other universities."

"For several years, North Carolina has been recognized as a top state for nanotechnology research and practical application," said John Hardin, Executive Director of the Office of Science & Technology in the North Carolina Department of Commerce. "This conference, which focuses on moving nanoscience from the lab to the global market, will both highlight North Carolina's pioneering role and help participants turn emerging nanotechnologies into skilled, high-wage jobs."

"Having the founding business organization of the nanotechnology sector, the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association, choose to partner with COIN and N.C. Department of Commerce on this event is most gratifying and demonstrates North Carolina's leadership in the nanotechnology field," said Griffith A. Kundahl, Executive Director of COIN.

This event comes on the heels of last summer's Commercialization of Micro-Nano Systems Conference (COMS) in Greensboro, North Carolina, which was hosted by COIN, and included participants from 18 countries.
