The Nanotechnology Institute is taking its show on the road.
The group will use part of the $1.16 million in state funding it was recently awarded to take its nanotechnology ommercialization efforts statewide in conjunction with a similar organization in Pittsburgh.
“A lot of the work that we did in the past six months working with Harrisburg was to encourage them to support the programs that focus on commercialization,” said Anthony P. Green, vice president of technology commercialization for Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania, which co-founded the NTI in 2000 with Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania.

PCAST Report Recommends Increased Funding For Nanotech Research
The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) has a catalytic and substantial impact on the growth of the U.S. nanotechnology industry and should be continued with increased funding from the office of management and budget, according to a new report from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. The report provides several other recommendations for improving the NNI and updates progress on some of the key recommendations PCAST made in 2010. Read more…

While it doesn’t garner as many column inches as other industries – probably because it still seems like sci-fi to most people – the nanotechnology industry continues to expand out of the lab and into practical applications. Nanotechnology, the creation and use of devices that are between one and 100 nanometers wide (a nanometer is a billionth of a meter), is today worth an estimated $24 billion according to some research, and that figure is expected to rise steadily.
