Nanotechnology: Will it drive a new innovation economy for the U.S.?
LIVE Webcast: While hopes are high for nanotechnology, what is actually happening on the ground in terms of nanotechnology research and commercialization? In which regions and countries is nanotechnology research clustering, and what is the U.S. position relative to other international competitors? What has been achieved by the $10 billion federal nanotechnology R&D investment since 2001? Are U.S. companies also making long-term investments in nanotechnology, and in what sectors, technologies and locations are corporations focusing upon?
Philip Shapira and Alan Porter of the School of Public Policy within Ivan Allen College and the Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS-ASU) will address these questions and more at a March 23 program with Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies Director David Rejeski. Hosted by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies and the Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS-ASU)
Event location: Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, 5th Floor Conference Room in the Ronald Reagan Building at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC.
