UK NanoKTN counts 3,000th member, courts stronger bioscience interest

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK’s Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) is celebrating its 3,000th member. The government-backed initiative, which was established to support the exploitation and commercialisation of micro and nanotechnology (MNT) generally, is designed to provide a forum linking the MNT R&D sector with the wider industry through collaborations between suppliers and users. Its Healthcare & Life Sciences group boasts 270 members, and the network is seeking to attract further interest in the bioscience and other sectors of this industry, a spokesperson told Clinica. Earlier this year, the NanoKTN unveiled plans to set up a medtech-specific Nanotechnology in Medical Devices (NiMeD) focus group (, 1 March 2012).
