Indian nano-tech group in US to create big splash
(Nanowerk News) A group of Indian Americans well placed in the nanotechnology industry have formed The Indus Nanotechnology Association (TINA) to create a bigger impact in the market.
TINA arose from the Nanotechnology and Nano-Bio Convergence Conference held here last week, where seven of the 14 featured speakers were Indian Americans in academics, research, government and industry.
TINA will be coordinated by conference organiser Thomas Abraham, president of Innovative Research and Products, a Connecticut firm conducting industry and market analysis of new generation technologies.
Abraham is also the chairman of Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO).
Other initiators of TINA include P. Somasundaran of Columbia University, Brij Moudgil of University of Florida and Ganesh Skandan, chief of NEI Corp in New Jersey.
The new group will provide a platform for Indian origin nano-technology researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs and investors to exchange ideas and provide networking opportunities to advance the field and create new areas of business.
