Representing #NanoEd at the White House
Omni Nano participated to the White House Forum on Small Business Challenges to Commercializing Nanotechnology, organized by the National Economic Council and the Office of Science and Technology Policy in Washington D.C. At this Forum, important initiatives related to nanotechnology were launched, ranging from education to workforce development to commercialization.
“It’s important to see the effort of the Federal Government at supporting nanotechnology education, entrepreneurship, R&D, tech transfer, and commercialization,” Omni Nano Executive Director Dr. Marco Curreli commented.

The “after party” was a great venue to network and make new connections. We were able to discuss partnerships and education progress with many of the participants.
