TEHRAN, Oct. 05 (Press Shia Agency) – The 9th International Nanotechnology Festival (IranNano 2016) is underway at the Persian Gulf Hall of Tehran Permanent International Fairground on 5-8 Oct., with the participation of 109 institutes and firms.
According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), the participants in IranNano 2016 include 72 producing and manufacturing companies, 17 universities, research centers, technology parks and incubators, 9 laboratories, 6 promotional institutes and 12 international companies.
During the festival, specialized meetings will be held on patenting, marketing, active institutes in nanotechnology, agriculture and safety, hygiene and waste management, and 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 idea about the production of nanotechnology fabrics under a united brand. Defining of a united brand for nanotechnology fabrics will decrease confusion in customers. Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council starts this plan in the field of textile, and it will be carried out in other industries in future.
The development of nanotechnology in Iran has led to the creation of international markets for Iranian nanotechnology products to the extent that these products have been exported to 18 countries. Iranian nanotechnology products have been exported to Germany, South Korea,Turkey, Russia, Australia, Pakistan, Iraq and a number of CIS countries in two groups of laboratorial and industrial equipment and final products and materials.
Nanotechnology International Festival is held annually by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, and is the largest and most credible domestic exhibition in the field of nanotechnology, and considered as the second major nanotechnology festival in Asia.
