Singapore has a prosperous, market-based economy. The country has the fifth busiest ports in the world and prides itself on being corruption-free. The GDP of Singapore was US$314.9 billion in 2011. Singapore has a small land area and a highly educated population. This, combined with their lack of natural resources, means that they should continue to innovate and focus on knowledge-related activities to remain competitive. Their RIE (Research, Innovation and Enterprise) plans intend to establish Singapore as one of the most research-intensive, innovative and entrepreneurial economies in the world.
With this level of commitment to science and technology, there is little doubt that nanotechnology will also benefit. Singapore is committed to the commercialization of research outcomes which should see technologies being developed through research. With strong support from the government and industry, Singapore will continue to be a vibrant environment for research and nanotechnology.
It is in this context that we are launching this first edition of the Nano Singapore 2020 conference and exhibition as a unique platform that will bring annually together leading scientists, researchers, engineers, practitioners, technology developers, industrials and policymakers. It will offer them the opportunity to exchange information on their latest research progress and innovation, network, find new partners, understand the current state of the art in nanotechnology and discuss directions for future research within the international nanotechnology community.
By welcoming worldwide contributions, this new conference will give attendees a unique overview of the global research efforts in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology and enrich the discussion and networking.
