Nanotechnology is rapidly transforming industries from medicine to manufacturing to energy. Since the passage of the 21st Century Nanotechnology R&D Act, the U.S. has spent $24 billion in the science of nanotechnology. The science is rapidly becoming the business of nanotechnology, creating thousands of new start-ups, bolstering nearly every industry across the globe, and bringing life changing innovations to market that already improve lives around the world.

"We are honored to host an event of this caliber in North Carolina, which is attracting nanotech leaders from around the globe. It reflects the growing awareness of and interest in North Carolina's world-class nanotech cluster," said Griffith Kundahl, Executive Director of COIN.

Topics to be addressed during the conference sessions include:

Risk vs. Value: Impact of Nanotechnology Environmental, Health, Safety (EHS) on Business Decisions
Achieving Commercialization Success: How to Sell Nano Products to Large Companies
Nano Energy Solutions: Perspectives on Solar, Wind and Batteries
The Current State of Investing in the Nanotechnology Community
Nanotechnology Industrial Espionage - How to Protect Your Company
Nanomanufacturing Panel
Cybersecurity Breakout Session

A complete conference agenda can be found here - http://www.nanoevent.org/node/7.

"We have assembled a tremendous lineup of keynote speakers for our premier event, which has already become the largest Nanotechnology conference in the South," said Vincent Caprio, Executive Director of the NanoBCA.

The conference will feature a dynamic lineup of keynote speakers, including:

Sally Tinkle, PhD, Acting Director & EHS Coordinator, NNCO
