Applied Nanotech to Discuss Nanotech and Jobs in Washington D.C. - News Item

Nano-Proprietary, Inc. today announced that Dr. Zvi Yaniv, CEO of its subsidiary Applied Nanotech, a premier research and commercialisation organization dedicated to developing applications for nanotechnology, has been invited to participate in two nanotechnology related panel discussions in Washington D.C. in March. By invitation of the Foresight and Governance Project and the Meridian Institute, Dr. Yaniv will participate in "Dialog on Nanotechnology and Intellectual Property" on March 30th. On April 1st, Dr. Yaniv will participate in the NanoScience Exchange and Foley & Lardner panel entitled "Nanotechnology, U.S. Manufacturing and Job Retention."

The "Dialog on Nanotechnology and Intellectual Property," to be held at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, is one in a series of discussions that focuses on proactive approaches to public policy issues affecting nanotechnology, its development and commercialisation.

On April 1st, at the Washington Harbour offices of Foley & Lardner in Georgetown, Foley & Larder in conjunction with Vince Caprio, will host a reception and panel discussion on "Nanotechnology, U.S. Manufacturing and Job Retention." This discussion will address issues such as:

  • Will nanotechnology create new jobs as predicted by senators and congressmen - or will those jobs be lost to overseas competitors?
  • Will the U.S. lead in intellectual property development, only to let the manufacturing of those technologies go outside its borders?

Dr. Yaniv, a pioneer in nanotechnology, is a leader in the display industry utilizing electron field emission from carbon films / carbon nanotubes. Dr. Yaniv is an authority in sensors, electro-optics, liquid crystal technology, amorphous semiconductors, technology commercialization and business management.
