Industrial Partnership - Nanotech SMEs and Ready Partners in SIP

SIP has committed 10 billion RMB (about 1.6B USD) to further develop Suzhou high-tech industries including nanotech enabled industries with the following focus areas: 
  • Micro and nano-manufacturing technologies (printed electronics, nano carbon, MEMS technology & devices, nanoimprint lithography, instruments & devices) 
  • Advanced functional materials (nano carbon materials and other functional nano materials)
  • Energy and green technologies (battery technology, photovoltaics technology, lighting, power electronics, gas/water purification, green technologies) 
  • Nano medicine (targeted drug delivery, nano devices and instruments for imaging and diagnostics, health and safety) 

Today, Suzhou is one of the most dynamic places for nanotech startups in the world.  Over 180 nanotech SMEs including SVG Optronics, Halation Photonics, Nano-Micro Technology (NMT), Nanowin, Suzhou NanoGrid Technology and Suzhou Natong, have developed and grown rapidly with the support of the SIP nanotech ecosystem.  SVG Optronics (stock code:300331) was founded in 2001 and is now a success story having been listed on the Growth Enterprise Market at Shenzhen Stock Exchange on June 28, 2012. 


Also, SIP is housed with 20000 national and multinational companies as your ready partners, such as 3M, Samsung, Siemens, Johnson & Johnson, Phillips, AMD, Bosch, China WLCSP, Eli Lily and others. In a word, SIP provides you ideal industrial partnerships if you wish to set up a regional headquarter or do business development in China.
