"Jim Hurd, founder of the NanoScience Exchange, recently explained his new endeavor to The Nano Circuit. "We are facilitating strong relationships between leading nanotech experts and government officials and key media," he said.
The goals of Hurd's NanoScience Exchange are to work closely with government officials to develop strong relationships with nanotech experts; to foster discussion on benchmarking key areas of the U.S. nanotech program; and to develop strong relationships with the national media so that adults, teenagers and children have access to timely and accurate information on the realities and potential of nanotech.
The second NanoScience Exchange meeting was held earlier in August at the Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara. Numerous topics were discussed including concerns that the United States does not have a compelling lead in nanotech research, which could have national security implications down the road.
Several of the evening's discussions related to patents. The large number of nanotechnology patents being filed could overlap and result in litigation that could slow growth dramatically. Speakers were concerned about the difficulty that U.S. companies are having in getting their patents issued in Japan. Also discussed were proposed major patent fee increases for the U.S. Patent Office."
