Cientifica Leads Asian Nanotechnology Initiatives, Expands Regional Presence Through World Class Conferences and Consultancy Services
According to Cientifica estimates, governments and companies across the region will ramp up annual investment in nanotechnologies to over US$4 billion a year by 2010. Cientifica's offices in India and Singapore now span the region covering India, China, Australia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and South East Asia.
Cientifica's flagship event, The World Nano-Economic Congress (www.world-nano.com) returns to Singapore for the second year after its hugely successful debut in 2004. The annual event draws hundreds of high level participants from companies ranging from LG Electronics to Applied Materials as well as the foremost universities and research institutes in the region. The next event in the series will be held in Mumbai, India in February 2006.
Cientifica organizes specialized events across the region such as AsiaFutureTex (www.asiafuturetex.com), this year held in Singapore. The conference, along with its European sister event EuroFutureTex (http://www.eurofuturetex.com/), looks at how one of the world's oldest industries is among the first to reap the benefits of nanotechnology, keeping it competitive and breathing new life into traditional companies by harnessing the potential of the nanoscale. Companies across the region are already producing high value multifunctional fibers for traditional markets such as apparel, and developing new materials and treatments to open up brand new markets.
Through its publications, business intelligence and consulting business, Cientifica is helping companies from Mumbai to Tokyo unlock the economic potential of nanotechnologies while avoiding the hype often associated with emerging technologies.
