NanoConnect is the industry collaboration program managed by Flinders Centre for NanoScale Science and Technology. After carrying out the successful pilot program last year, the Centre has received funding from the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE) of $250,000 per year for 2 years to continue this collaborative research program.
The objective is to provide a simple, low-risk mechanism for companies to utilise University research resources such as advanced analytical equipment and technical “know-how” that they would not otherwise have access to.
NanoConnect is targeting companies who may not have the knowledge on how nanotechnology can positively impact their business and products.
