Topic: The Nanotechnology Revolution & Big Disruptions of the Small in Healthcare Sector


Robert Ehrmann, Managing Director at the Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization (CNEU), State College, PA


Abstract: Nanotechnology is playing a key role in this, the next industrial revolution.  It is not an industry; it is an enabling technology that is impacting almost every employment sector from electronics, energy, biotechnology, biomedicine, pharmaceuticals, textiles, agriculture, food production, printing and publishing, plastics, metals, information technology, building and construction materials, recreation, and many others.  How effectively companies in these industries utilize nanotechnology in the years ahead will be crucial to their competitiveness.   Pennsylvania has taken on the challenge to educate a nanotechnology enabled workforce to assist companies in their journey in the nano regime, and has been recognized as the national leader in nanotechnology undergraduate education.
