The role of Nanotech BC falls under three broad mandates:
To advocate for growth of BC’s nanotechnology research and development community and infrastructure.
To communicate with industrial, academic, government and public stakeholders to increase awareness of nanotechnology.
To represent BC’s nanotechnology interests and pursue partnerships nationally and internationally.
At the outset the needs of the research community are a priority, but the emphasis will shift towards economically beneficial activities as applications are deployed. Nanotech BC will also assist provincial stakeholders by responding to national and international initiatives in a coordinated and strategic manner by opening the doors to industrial partners.
