This enthusiastic and close knit team is working in new ways to deliver real benefit for UK wealth creation in new and emerging technologies. This network will be delivered in parallel, with both Nanotechnology led activities and strong collaborations with other leading organizations, to provide this valuable service for the benefit of the UK.
Aiding the transfer of knowledge between industry and academia, organizations offer companies dealing in small-scale technology connectivity to information on funding initiatives, existing projects, centers of excellence, new processes, patents, as well as keeping up-to-date with industry regulation. The Nanotechnology is an important part of the innovation process in the sector and has the potential to have a real impact on the fortunes of the UK economy transferring technology, facilitating innovation, ensuring the provision of suitable demonstrator facilities and the encouragement of supply chain collaborations. These organizations can provide thought leadership within the various constituent sectors o as well as contributing to the creation of regional and national UK policy.
The Center of Excellence for Nanotechnology, Micro and Photonic Systems (Cenamps) is funding research and development programs that will lead to further commercial opportunities and spin-outs in North East England.
Cenamps is an international Center of Excellence for Nanotechnology, Micro and Photonic Systems. Seeds collaborative R&D programs as platforms for near market commercialization opportunities through university spin-outs and by strengthening the knowledge base to support larger industry-linked projects in the region.
The resources that are all ready located in the North East of England are already huge. INEX is the largest and best equipped public sector micro and nano device fabrication facility in the UK. It was founded in 2002 as the business arm of the Institute of Nanoscale Science and Technology at Newcastle University, but has been an independent organization since 2004. The facility has generated millions of pounds worth of new technology since its formation, so far spinning out 11 companies in the process making investment in the UK a big player to look at.
