NanoCentral Partners with UK Innovation Forum

NanoCentral is pleased to announce a partnership with the UK Innovation Forum (UKIF) - a membership forum that is dedicated to supporting collaboration within the UK innovation community in order to enable the successful commercialisation of IP.

As part of this partnership, NanoCentral will share some key IP with the UKIF and has, in turn, secured membership of the UKIF for the majority of the community that NanoCentral has been serving.

Commenting on this announcement, Gerald Law, CEO of the UKIF, said: "The objectives of the UKIF and NanoCentral are closely aligned and partnering is a natural progression for our two organisations. By cooperating in this way, we shall not only extend the reach of both our communities, but also help to deliver an enhanced service that our members can use to help address their innovation challenges and achieve their innovation objectives."
