The Business after the Science

The Business after the Science

With the emphasis in nanotechnology shifting to commercialization it is important for all the stake-holders to come together. These include the tech transfer offices, innovators, manufacturers and marketing companies as well as end-users such as the military. This makes the "Nanomanufacturing & Dual-Use Commercialization Conference" a timely and valuable event for you to attend.

The major objective of the conference is to make the connection between existing manufacturers and the innovators of nano-enabled materials and devices. By leveraging existing capabilities these innovations can get to market faster and with less investment. Find out how to improve your products or add to your existing product line. Just as important are contract manufacturers looking to expand their business in nanotech-enabled devices and materials.

Existing manufacturers are a vital part of the growing infrastructure in the nanotechnology revolution. This conference shows you how the vital dots are getting connected and how you become a part of it all.
