Helping Companies Innovate Through Nanotechnology
Whether you’re an emerging company that’s developing new applications and opportunities for nanotechnology, or an existing manufacturer looking to incorporate nanotechnology to improve a product or process, the Nanotechnology Institute (NTI) is here to help.
To encourage nanotechnology in Pennsylvania, the NTI works with businesses, universities and investors to facilitate the research, development and commercialization of this leading-edge technology in real-world applications. The NTI supplies the network, knowledge and capital to help fuel nano-based economic development in the region.
Our success is founded on our ability to bring together intellectual property and technology and commercialize it more efficiently than the path that discoveries traditionally take from lab to marketplace.

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.”
