abstract

  • Nano Ontario is a not-for-profit corporation representing the interests of academic, industrial, government and financial community members in the development of nanotechnologies in Ontario, Canada. Members work together to raise the profile, increase the research, build the investment and drive economic returns from nanotechnology in the province and across Canada. In this presentation I will discuss how this multi-sector cooperation serves to achieve the following main objectives: Be a trusted source of information for all nanoscience and nanotechnology activity in Ontario; Advise government organizations on economic opportunity, policy, standards & regulations that nanotechnology can offer, to enable Ontario to benefit and capitalize from its nano research, development, and commercial capacity; Map Ontario’s capacity in nanotechnology research, development, and commercialization; Serve as the main point of contact for Ontario’s community of practice in nanoscience & nanotechnology; Build and facilitate new connections between nanotechnology groups in universities, government organizations and industries within Ontario, across Canada, and internationally; and Coordinate public outreach activities to advocate the societal benefits enabled by nanoscience and nanotechnology.
