Nano Tech Festival Underway

The Ninth International Nanotechnology Festival (IranNano 2016) is underway at Tehran’s Permanent International Fairground on 5-8 October, with the participation of 109 domestic and foreign institutes and firms.
According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, participants in IranNano 2016 include 72 production and manufacturing companies, 17 universities, research centers, technology parks and incubators, nine laboratories, six promotional institutes and 12 international companies, Mehr News Agency reported.
During the festival, specialized meetings will be held on patenting, marketing, nanotech institutes, agriculture and safety, hygiene and waste management, as well as textile and fabrics.
The meeting on textile will be held to create a consortium with the participation of all producers of nanotechnology fabrics to exchange ideas about the production of nanotechnology fabrics under a single brand.
The development of nanotechnology in Iran has led to the creation of international markets for Iranian nanotechnology products that have been exported to 18 countries. The export of laboratorial and industrial equipment and products have been dispatched to Germany, South Korea, Turkey, Russia, Australia, Pakistan, Iraq and a number of CIS countries.
Held annually by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, the festival is the largest and most credible domestic exhibition in the field of nanotechnology and considered the second major nanotech festival in Asia.
“Iran’s nanotechnology industry has been making rapid progress,” said Saeed Sarkar, the council’s secretary, earlier in September.
“Currently, 17 countries import Iranian nano products.”
The growing exports in the field include lab equipment, industrial machinery and nanomaterials. In the five months of the current Iranian year (started March 20), exports generated more than $35 million.
In 2007, Iran ranked 23rd globally in nanotechnology with the most highly cited papers and only second to South Korea in Asia. By 2012, Iran was eighth in nanotechnology.
