Working in Nanotechnology

The RapidNanoNet program promotes the interests of nanotechnology businesses by providing a consortium for matching businesses, educational institutions, and governmental entities in order to develop prototypes and achieve product commercialization within the field of nanotechnology.

The Promise of Nanotechnology

“The use of nanotechnology in consumer products and industrial applications is growing rapidly, with the products listed in the inventory showing just the tip of the iceberg.  How consumers respond to these early products — in food, electronics, health care, clothing and cars — will be a litmus test for broader market acceptance of nanotechnologies in the future.”
