Panel Session: Nanotechnology, From Lab to Liquidity
Well over $4B annually is now being invested worldwide in nanotechnology
research by governments and major corporations. This investment is creating
a rich body of nanotechnology, much of which is ripe for commercialization.
Scientists can be the initiators of a chain of innovation and
entrepreneurship which takes new discoveries from science to technology to
product to business. The current economic environment presents special and
daunting challenges in this journey. This panel will bring together a
scientist-turned-entrepreneur, a non-scientist entrepreneur, a product
developer, an angel investor and two venture capitalists. The group will
provide knowledgeable insights into and practical advice about the realities
of taking the long and winding road from the lab to liquidity. The panel
will kick off with questions from the moderator, but the bulk of the session
will involve questions from the audience.

The Nanotech 2003 Development Track - Roadmap for Industry
The theme for the Nanotech 2003 Development Track conference is the Roadmap for Industry.
The track is designed to compliment the research, development scientific and
academic sessions in the various technical session tracks featured at Nanotech 2003.
This track is specifically designed to help companies gain a better understanding
of the current competitive and business development environment for nantechnology.
Nanotechnology has the potential to radically and abruptly impact a company's
market position therefore we will also be looking for presentations that
articulate advantages of planning for the future of nanotechnology, microtechnology
and biotechnology today. The intended audience is business, operations and
technology managers from nano-based companies as well as general industry and
crossover scientists from our technical program. Overall, the Nanotech 2003 Development
Track will discuss the nano revolution by providing an overview of the
nanotechnology industry segments, products, funding, business case studies
and technology platform discussions.
The topics of interest cover all industries poised to benefit from the advancements in nanotechnology.
- Semiconductors: Molecular Electronics, Nano-Photonics, Memory
- Microsystems: MEMS, Communications, Optical, Fluidics, RF
- Energy: Fuel Cells, Biomimetics, Membranes, Carbon Systems
- Materials: Compounds, Powders, Polymers, Nanostructures, Nanosystems
- Biotechnology: Delivery, Lab-on-Chip, Proteomics, Genomics
- Medical: Rational Drug Design, Human Responses, Molecular Medicine
