IMS Calls Upon Australians To Join The Nanotechnology Revolution - News Item

Australian companies, institutions and individuals are being called upon to express their interest in collaborating with their counterparts across the globe in developing manufacturing processes for the revolutionary new 21st-century field of nanotechnology.

The collaborative nanotechnology initiative is being developed by IMS (Intelligent Manufacturing Systems), an industry-led, international R&D network established at an inter-governmental level to develop the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies.

As shown by the recently proposed “nanohouse project”, which looks at applying nanotechnologies to the building industry, nanotechnology is a priority for the IMS. They are now proposing to establish a Community of Common Interest (CCI), called ‘n-ABLE’, in nanotechnology manufacturing. They are seeking manufacturers, users, product developers, investors, researchers, academics and others with an interest to participate and collaborate in a long-term relationship that will drive innovation in manufacturing for the rapidly evolving nanotechnology industry.

The intention of the CCI is to enable and facilitate synergies among its members while creating new IMS projects and programs to address the priority needs of the nanotechnology-manufacturing sector.

These include the development of manufacturing technologies for new nanotechnology-based input materials and end products and the metrology needs for those technologies. They will also be looking at education and training, testing techniques and an understanding the possible toxic and other hazardous properties of various nano-materials.
