Speakers Announced for Nanotechnology Manufacturer's Forum During Nano Week 2006

The Lorain County Manufacturing Council (LCMC) today announced the speaker line-up for the 2nd Annual Nanotechnology Manufacturer's Forum to be held October 4 at the Spitzer Conference Center on the Lorain County Community College campus (1005 North Abbe Road, Elyria, Ohio) from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The one-day event is designed to encourage collaboration between nanotechnology experts and traditional manufacturers.

"We have an excellent line-up of experienced nanotechnology professionals scheduled to speak to traditional manufacturers about the benefits of nanotechnology," said John Butkowski, President of the Lorain County Manufacturing Council. Butkowski continued, "Our goal for this forum is really about education and awareness. It's important for manufacturers to understand the benefits of nanotechnology."

The forum is directed to representatives of manufacturing companies, including those who hold senior technical design and engineering positions; new product and business development executives; manufacturing and operations managers; materials scientists; mechanical engineers; marketing and sales representatives; entrepreneurs; policy makers; technology transfer specialists and economic development leaders. Those who attend will gain an understanding of nanotechnology, learn how to make product and process improvements, and learn about new market opportunities in the field nanotechnology.

The 2006 Nanotechnology Manufacturer's Forum will address the following topics:

  • Nanotechnology 101 and consumer applications
  • The status of nanotech commercialization in manufacturing
  • Adding value to products through nanotechnology
  • Nanotech commercialization: An Entrepreneur's Success Story
  • Nanotechnology applications and trends in manufacturing

Speakers for the forum are invited executives from companies and organizations leading the commercialization of nanotechnology. Confirmed speakers at this time include:

  • Alexis Abramson, PhD., Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Case Western Reserve University and NorTech Fellow.;
  • Peter Ludwig, PhD., Vice President of Business Development, Nanophase Technologies;
