Innovations in nanotechnology are poised to revolutionize many facets of industry, allowing radical advances in countless fields and enabling new opportunities for a broad spectrum of businesses. On September 13th 2012, the NanoForum, in conjunction with the NanoDTC-organised nCam2012: thinking small conference, will host an outward facing event to encourage, discuss and promote Cambridge-originating nanotechnologies with potential for substantial commercial impact.

This event will bring together business visionaries, success stories, potential nano-entrepreneurs and other interested players to showcase Cambridge’s nanotech potential within the university and to the wider business community. More details will be available shortly as the programme is finalized.
