Happy New Year 2011 to you, and welcome with us the Lunar New Year of the Golden Rabbit starting on February 3, 2011!


The year 2010 was a very productive year for NanoGlobe. And I'm honored to report that 2011 is looking even more productive and exciting. We have started a number of interesting new projects with the top nanotech research and industry leaders to accelerate the adoption of their cutting edge technologies in the market. We will be sharing with you our unique experiences and perspectives in the coming year.


In this issue, we are featuring Special Coverage on China's Nanotechnology. We'll describe our site visits to Industry parks in Suzhou (Venice of the Orient) and Wuxi (Solar City) within 100km west of Shanghai.


NanoGlobe, my team and I are here to help you identify business strategies and opportunities in emerging technologies and industries in China. Please do not hesitate to email me about working together. Our professional services cover the gamut of commercialization and internationalization.


Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous Year of the Golden Rabbit!


Dr. Lerwen Liu, the Asia Nanotech Ambassador

CHINANO Forum & Exhibition 2010,
Suzhou, China (November 13-15, 2010)

NanoGlobe co-organized China's first international nanotech application and business focused event with the Suzhou Industrial Park and the regional government and research institutions.


The event attracted over 500 local industry and academia participants who were provided a global overview on nanotechnology commercialization status from RusNano, Finland Tekes Nanotech Program, Bayer Nanotech Working Group, Kyoto Nano Cluster and others. Topics such as Printed Electronics, Lighting, PV, Energy Storage, Micro/Nano Manufacturing Technologies, Functional Materials etc were all covered by national and international speakers.



NanoGlobe's Senior Consultant/Partner, Ms Sara Giordani presented Strategy of IP Management in Nanotechnology Business.

Chaired by Dr Lerwen Liu, we co-organized the special lunch session on Nanotechnology Investment -Opportunities and Challenges. Suzhou Investment Group, Nanostart AG, Zyvex, VDI, Transpacifc together with technopreneurs, government policy makers and researchers from Suzhou and other parts of China all participated in this worthwhile session.

Visit Suntech Power

We had the privilege to visit the largest PV manufacturer in China, located in the Wuxi New District, just 30 minutes car ride from SIP. We received a comprehensive guided tour by Dr Liu's old friends back in Sydney at the University of New South Wales (note its founder and some of the executives are graduates of UNSW). We obtained a better understanding on how nanotech could better improve Si PV efficiency.
