Message from the Directors
Over the last two decades, nanoscience research has demonstrated the potential to greatly improve functionality in areas such as electronics, healthcare and energy. It is fair to say, however, that few of these discoveries have found their way into the market place. Deployment of these advances at societal-impact scales will require revolutionary advances in high volume nanomanufacturing while simultaneously addressing scalability, reliability, sustainability and cost constraints. Furthermore, business innovation and the development of a high-tech workforce are critical to success.
