A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute to Host 2012 PA Nanotechnology Conference at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology
May 8, 2012
The A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute (DNI)
will host the PA Nanotechnology 2012 conference from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on June 5, 2012 at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, 326 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101. DNI will be hosting the conference with the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, Carnegie Mellon University, Harrisburg Area Community College, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, Lehigh University Center for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, Penn State Materials Research Institute, Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization, University of Pennsylvania Nano/Bio Interface Center and University of Pittsburgh Petersen Institute of NanoScience and Engineering.
The PA Nanotechnology conference explores viable nano-based strategies, programs, and resources to assist economic development via education and job creation and retention. It will promote collaborative nanotechnology research, education, technology transfer, entrepreneurship and commercialization within the Commonwealth. By connecting education and industry, the conference will help provide a platform to enhance innovation, technology transfer, course curricula, job skills and business growth. This event is an opportunity to publicize and promote PA leadership in nanotechnology R&D, education and sustaining technology businesses. Promising new technologies and PA businesses will be highlighted.
Nanotechnology involves science and engineering at the molecular and atomic scale, with applications in areas such as life sciences, electronics and energy. In 2010, the NSF and the National Nanotechnology Institute projected that the nanotechnology products market would be $400-1,000 billion by 2015, and $1-3 trillion by 2020. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and gain understanding of nanotechnology trends, evolving applications, workforce development, and partnering opportunities.
