About the World Nano-Economic Congress
Nanotechnology is a global phenomenon, but the methods of making money from it vary widely. To address this global variety, the WNEC series of events have been held in every major region of the world since 2003, starting in Washington, D.C. with succeeding events in London, Munich, Singapore, and Dublin, Ireland. The WNEC India will represent the seventh event in this international series of conferences. The next in the series will be held in Singapore on 31st October and 1st November 2006.
