Australian nanotech forces combine

Friday, 25 May, 2007

The Australian Institute for Commercialisation (AIC) and the Australian Nano Business Forum (ANBF) have combined to help raise industry awareness of the potential of nanotechnology.

The AIC and ANBF will work together to provide practical and educational information to businesses across industry sectors that could benefit from nanotechnology applications.

AIC CEO, Dr Rowan Gilmore, said that the agreement will not only benefit the nano-researcher community, but also benefit the growing number of nano-specialist companies in Australia.

"The AIC and ANBF will work together using specific mechanisms to find those businesses that will derive economic benefit from the adoption of micro and nanotechnologies," Gilmore said.

ANBF CEO, Tina Rankovic, welcomed the agreement with the AIC as a step forward in Australian nanotechnology.

"This initiative is a very practical way for the ANBF to deliver benefits to a large proportion of its membership base," Rankovic said. "By working with the AIC, we hope to assist companies to improve their speed to market of nano-enabled products."
