Nano competition debuts at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Oct. 11, 2006 -- A nanotechnology-oriented forum bringing together academia, industry and budding entrepreneurs, will be held April 2-4, 2007, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Nano Nexus 2007 is designed to foster innovation and increase collaboration between universities, government, industry and the investment community -- all critical players for commercializing new nanotechnology. It will also serve as a component of the Innovation Valley Nano Initiative, an effort to cultivate nanotechnology business in the region.

"This is the first time this type of event has been hosted by a national laboratory," said Alex Fischer, director of technology transfer and economic development at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. "We have been working to open our doors to business and outside research institutions. This forum will help crown those efforts. It will also help to put East Tennessee on the map as a center of nanotechnology innovation."

Nano Nexus 2007 promises to draw attendees from across the country with three main events:

  • Idea to Product or I2P, a nanotechnology business competition for university graduate students with a $25,000 prize.
  • Nano Industry Forum, where representatives from top corporations will present their toughest research problems and connect with researchers who can meet those needs.
  • Nano Venture Showcase, a venture capital forum showcasing the most promising nanotechnology start-up companies.

Several of Oak Ridge National Laboratory's core university partners will be participating in the event, including University of Tennessee, Duke University, Florida State University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Vanderbilt University.

A leading center for nanoscience research, Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have published more than 1,000 nano-related papers. The lab recently completed construction of the Spallation Neutron Source, a $
