Share Article

Nano Valley Consortium members include small and large companies, academics, and government agencies who work together to commercialize nano research for military and commercial applications. Collaborating on project teams spreads the resources, risks, and costs and access to large military markets. The Consortium Kick-Off Meeting is October 18th & 19th in Swainsboro, GA.for new and prospective members.

The Nano Valley Consortium members represent large and small companies, academics, and government agencies and organizations that work together to identify, develop, manage, and implement nanotechnology projects that benefit both military and commercial markets. Its primary "customer" is ARDEC - the lead Research, Development, and Engineering Center (RDEC) for the Army and it provides the Consortium's interface to the Army.

The Consortium is unique in that it is the only organization of its type focused solely on nanotechnology needs for military and commercial markets. It offers tremendous opportunities for smaller firms to not only collaborate with larger firms, but also to get access to government opportunities. A Consortium is an entity recognized by the Department of Defense and provides the opportunity for the Department to share in commercialization resource needs, costs, and risks with Consortium members.

Registration is available online at

The Consortium is not intended as a social network, but rather as a project-focused group with specific objectives and measured outcomes. Membership offers the opportunity to work with others for early access to research and/or early transitioning of technology resulting in rapid market entry, leveraged research investment, greater access to facilities and equipment, and broader testing and evaluation capabilities.

The National Nanotechnology Manufacturing Center is a not-for-profit organization committed to the efficient commercialization of nanotechnology through a cost-effective nanomanufacturing infrastructure and well-defined standards and workplace safety procedures.
