2015 Nanotechnology Industries Association Annual Sympoisum Announced


Nanotechnology industries are at a tipping point. After decades of investment, nanotechnology is changing how we take our medicine, grow our food, build our cars, and more. In the future, new products that can benefit people across the globe, from rural communities to bustling metropolises, will come to the market at an increasing pace.   Fulfilling this potential requires companies with a bold vision for innovation and governments that provide a clear path to market. Policies that fracture the regulatory landscape and create unpredictable hurdles could put nanotech pipelines at risk. Creating a positive environment for nanotechnology will be essential.


We invite you to join participants from across the public and private sector to discuss what we must do to build the foundations for another successful decade of development in nanotechnology


2 December 2015
International Press Center
Rue De Loi 155
