In the first collaborative nanotechnology initiative between New York State and Israel, US and Israeli companies want to expose Israeli nanotechnology companies to sources of funding, research, and applications in the US at two large conferences to be held in New York.
“The US and Israel are the world’s two main centers of nanotechnology,” America-Israel Chamber of Commerce New York executive VP Ronny Bassan told “Globes”. “Exposing Israeli companies to New York’s nanotechnology research and applications arena will be mutually beneficial, will likely promote joint ventures and help implement commercial applications of developments by Israeli economies.”
Israel currently has about 30 nanotechnology start-ups and 15 older companies, in which $76 million has been invested altogether. Israel seven leading universities and research institutes have nanotechnology centers. Activity is particularly strong in nano-biotechnology and nano-electronics.
