Interviews of Asia's Nanotechnology Leaders
We conducted exclusive interview on China`s leading Bio/Nano-tech incubator Biobay located in the beautiful, historical and green Suzhou, China. Read our article of the interview at Nanotechnology Now to learn Suzhou government incentives for attracting Bio/Nano-tech companies to set up in Suzhou Industry Park and some of the exciting companies being housed there.


We interviewed the Director of Center for Innovation of LIPI (Indonesia largest national research organization) Dr. Bambang Subiyanto on the natural fiber based bio-nanocomposite materials developed at LIPI in collaboration with Japanese university and industry. Find out details about Indonesia R&D in nano-biocomposite materials R&D in our publication.

Nanotech Participation and Support in Singapore

  • IMRENanoGlobe promotes Singapore Printed Electronics technologies and featured the A*STAR Printable Electronics Workshop held on Jan. 8, 2010 at the Institute of Materials Research Engineering (IMRE). Find the article about this workshop at the SingNano Newsletter & Nanotechnology Now publications page.

Advising International Nanotech Companies on Business Development Opportunities in  Asia

  • Bio Focus (a pioneer Point of Care diagnostic company in Korea) & QT Tech (a Singapore semiconductor equipment and services provider) - visited our office in January for advice on nanotechnology and business development opportunities in Asia especially product distribution partners in Asia and regional R&D and business growth strategies.
  • Dr Alexei Andreev and Mr Michael Janse, Managing Directors of Harris and Harris (one of the world`s leading investors in companies enabled by nanotechnology and microsystems) visited various leading nanotech organizations and met with nanotech leaders in Singapore. We shared some of our insights on the regional nanotechnology development in Asia with the visitors. "Our portfolio companies have done fairly well during the economic down turn and many of them have strong partnerships with Asian manufacturers," Dr Andreev and Mr Janse indicated during their Singapore visit.
  • Nanoexa (a US start-up producing advanced Li-ion battery materials for electric  vehicle and portable devices helped by the state of the art quantum simulation techniques ) - is keen to explore business opportunities in Asia. We are working with Singapore EDB and Nanoexa for a possible internship program for training scientists/engineers on quantum simulation and battery materials fabrication. Learn more about Nanoexa in our next issues interviews.
