Advancing the Nanotechnology Industry in South Africa
December 3, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the upcoming Nanotechnology focused webinar titled “Advancing the Nanotechnology Industry in South Africa”. The webinar is sponsored by SabiNano supported by South Africa Nanotechnology Initiative (SANi) and will be hosted by TK Global Expert. The webinar aims to convene and connect Nanotechnology and procurement professionals in South Africa to present and discuss nanotech industry opportunities in South Africa.
South Africa is one of the African countries that have embraced the opportunities that nanotechnology presents to industry and society.
Much investment has been made by the Government to support research involving nanotechnology in the past ten years. This has resulted in many research papers published, some patents, and a few companies. Focus is now mainly on creating new nanotech industries and businesses and contributing to economic growth in a sustainable way.
Topics to be discussed include:
The State of Nanotechnology in South Africa: In Shaping the Future of Innovation
Dr Manfred Scriba, Research Group Leader: DSI Centre for Nanostructures and Advanced Materials; National Champion: DSI Nano-Micro Manufacturing Facility (SARIR)
