Nanotechnology Worldwide

There has been a lot of worldwide publicity as it relates to Nanotechnology with a variety of top class educational institutions, government research labs, non-profits, startups, and divisions of established companies participating over the last 10 years.

This Santa Cruz Chapter luncheon will address the kinds of global opportunities that will evolve in the marketplace as Nano Technology begins to transform the very basics of traditional manufacturing.

The presentations will inform the audience on the various activities under these many organizations and how they might bring the next wave of opportunity in nanotechnology with huge commercial potential. The luncheon will also touch on the funding by various governments and what might be needed to accelerate the establishment of Nanotechnology related industry. The potential environmental fears (well and ill founded) that need to be managed to help this new industry flourish over the coming years will be discussed.

Guest Speakers

Dhaval J. Brahmbhatt, Chairman, IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council (www.ieee.org/nano)

Charles V. Fishel, President Chief Operating Officer, Interface Sciences Corporation
