Keynote Speakers Address Entering the Biomaterials Market

Atlanta, GA | Posted on March 19th, 2013

This year's conference features keynote presentations that focus on the steps needed to deploy emerging nanotechnologies into the bioeconomy. Hear from these recognized global leaders:

"Small World, Large Impact: Driving a Materials Revolution through Nanotechnology"
Arthur Carty, Executive Director & Research Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Waterloo, Special Advisor to the President on International Science and Technology Collaboration

"Towards High-Value Applications of Nanocellulose: A Player and Patent Landscape Approach"
Katja Salmenkivi, Pöyry Management Consulting

"Key Considerations for Successful Technology Transfer of Nanocellulose"
Martha Marrapese, Keller and Heckman, USA
