Nanotechnology in British Columbia
(Nanowerk News) Nanotech BC has released the final draft of its Nanotechnology Asset Map (pdf download, 2 MB), prepared with support from the BC Ministry of Economic Development. This Map is the most comprehensive view of the nanotechnology community in BC to date.
Key information about the nanotechnology capabilities of over 80 principal researchers and 19 BC businesses was collected. The results of the survey will provide an invaluable resource describing the academic and industrial nanotechnology activities within British Columbia. The survey data was assembled during the first quarter of 2007.
Two web-based survey sites were constructed for academic and industrial participants to add input directly. In addition to direct interviews and survey information, institutional databases at key universities and provincial and federal granting databases were reviewed to create the most comprehensive view of the nanotechnology community in BC to date.
