What is NanoConnect?
NanoConnect is a collaborative research program being managed by Flinders University with support from the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE).
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.
Who is NanoConnect for?
NanoConnect is targeting companies in a variety of industries where nanotechnology may be applied to improve materials, coatings, processes, but either due to a lack of inhouse knowledge or resources, has not yet been employed by the company.
Although nanotechnology may be applied to develop new "High-Tech" products, it may also be applied to current products using existing processes and equipment in order to improve performance and/or cost. Application areas can include Batteries, Bio-sensors, Chemical Sensors, Clean Technologies, Electronics, Fabrics, Pharmaceuticals, Plastic Components, Protective Coatings, Renewable Energy, Solar Cells, Sporting Goods, and Water Purification.
