News Jan 19, 2011
Nanostart AG, the Frankfurt-based nanotechnology investment company, has expressed its strong support for the “Nanotechnology Action Plan 2015” announced yesterday by the German federal government, the aim of which is to build a strong and long-term basis to derive maximum benefit from the high potential offered by nanotechnology.
“As a global venture capital company specialized in nanotechnology, we see how important this program is to strengthen and expand the superb international position already held by Germany as one of the world’s preeminent nanotechnology nations,” said Marco Beckmann, CEO of Nanostart.
Beckmann continued, “More and more countries are recognizing the pivotal role of nanotechnology in economic growth and prosperity and are thus providing active government support. The race to determine the leading nanotech economies of the future is already well underway.”
There is universal agreement that nanotechnology offers immense potential for the future, a future which can already be seen taking shape now in the portfolio companies in which Nanostart has invested. Among these companies are some of the ground-breaking technologies which the German government has specifically cited as “already today providing important services.”
Software updates provide a simple, intuitive option for scientists to visualize metal-organic structures using polyhedral representations, improving understanding of chemical structure and properties. This could significantly aid analysis, design and prediction of a metal-organic compound's behavior in materials development.READ MORE
