(Nanowerk News) NanoProfessorŪ, a division of NanoInkŪ, Inc. focused on nanotechnology education, announced today that it has formally engaged NanoGlobe Pte. Ltd. as a strategic business partner in promoting the comprehensive and cutting-edge NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program in the Asia-Pacific region.
"The Asia-Pacific region is one of the largest and fastest growing nanotechnology markets. According to NanoGlobe's research data, R&D spending in nanotechnology by governments within the Asia-Pacific region reached over nine billion dollars in the last five years, with even stronger commitment for the next five years, which is why we are excited to bring the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program to the Asian market with NanoGlobe," said Dean Hart, chief commercial officer of NanoInk. "NanoGlobe has demonstrated its strong track record and commitment to stimulating international collaboration, as well as its passion for education in the field of nanotechnology. By launching the NanoProfessor Program, NanoProfessor and NanoGlobe together will help students throughout Asia gain valuable skills and experience necessary to be qualified for nanotechnology jobs in the fields of biotechnology, nanomaterials, medicine, electronics, alternative energy and more."
Headquartered in Singapore, NanoGlobe is a nanotech business development consulting company. NanoGlobe provides valuable services to its corporate, government and research institution customers in nanotechnology investment, policy, intelligence, R&D strategy and business development with its strong network and expertise in the field of nanotechnology.
"We are very impressed by the integrated nanotechnology educational platform provided by the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program," said Dr. Lerwen Liu, managing director of NanoGlobe Pte. Ltd. "We are excited by the opportunity of working with the NanoProfessor team in bringing this latest and most comprehensive hands-on education and training program to Asia today, enabling the Asia-Pacific region as a global leader in tomorrow's nanotechnology industry."
The NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program aims to expand hands-on nanotechnology education from the cleanrooms of research-based universities to undergraduate classrooms, and is especially well-suited to nanotechnology educational initiatives at the community college, technical institute, and undergraduate university level. The program alternates between classroom lectures and hands-on lab work and includes a textbook authored by leading nanotechnology experts, covering the topics of Nanotechnology Basics, NanoPhysics, NanoChemistry, NanoBiology and Environmental, Health, and Safety perspectives on nanotechnology.
In completing the hands-on lab experiments, students learn the fundamentals for building custom-engineered nanoscale structures while working with state-of-the-art equipment including NanoInk's NLP 2000 Desktop NanoFabrication System, a student-friendly atomic force microscope (AFM), an advanced fluorescence microscope and various chemical and biological materials used today within current and emerging nanotechnology applications.
