Abstract:
Business executives, entrepreneurs, investors and government researchers and development officials interested in commercializing recent research advances in nanoelectronics, nanofabrication and nanometrology will meet April 8 at a Technology Transfer Showcase hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Md. The day-long program is being sponsored by NIST, in conjunction with the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) and the Tech Council of Maryland (TCM).

April Tech Transfer Workshop Focuses on Nanotechnology Advances

GAITHERSBURG, MD | Posted on March 6th, 2008

NIST Acting Director James Turner will keynote the day's events which will highlight nanotechnology innovations and describe ways to develop successful partnerships with NIST including licensing and Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs). Poster sessions and tours of NIST nanotechnology facilities are also on the agenda.

Workshop speakers will cover a wide range of nanotechnology research topics ranging from characteristics of delivery systems for nanomedicine to single-molecule mass spectrometry, as well as the role of nanotechnology in building and construction and electronics.

The gathering is designed to offer ample networking opportunities for participants to meet with the workshop speakers and representatives from NIST nanotechnology facilities such as the Nanoscale Physics Laboratory, Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST), CNST Nanofab Shared-Use Facility, Magnetic Engineering Research Facility (MERF), the NIST Advanced Measurement Laboratory (AML) and NIST Combinatorial Methods Center (NCMC).

A full agenda and web registration for the technology transfer showcase can be found at www.nist.gov/partnerships. Registration closes April 1 for U.S. citizens and March 25 for non-U.S citizens.
