Congressional Nanotechnology Caucus Hosts Briefing on "Nanotech and Jobs"

On November 15, 2011, the Congressional Nanotechnology Caucus hosted a briefing on the impact of nanotechnology on job creation. Topics addressed included the best ways to encourage private/public partnerships; what kind of jobs nanotechnology investment can create; and where private capital is investing money in nanotechnology. Guest speakers included:

As noted in Jamison and Flynn's slides, the discussion reinforced the view that nanotechnology is creating jobs and helping grow the economy. The U.S. is in danger of losing ground to the European Union (EU) and emerging economies, however. Rung described how state and regional organizations can be helpful in promoting the commercialization of nanotechnologies.

The presentations are extremely well done and provide some useful metrics on nano commercialization success stories and the positive impact nanotechnology has on the economy. The slides are available online.
