11 Speakers

From Europe, Mexico and USA, with success experience in the industry will be focused on exchange their experience and knowledge on advanced materials that are driving new industrial applications with nanotechnology.

The Nanotechnology Ecosystem in
Nuevo León

Considering mainly the characteristics of Nuevo León’s industry among other factors, in 2009, under the triple helix concept, the Government, the Industry and the Academia funded The Nanotechnology Cluster of Nuevo León.

The Cluster, it is just part of a government long term program created to foster a Knowledge based Economy and Society under the conformation of an Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystem in the State that includes a Research and Technology Innovation Park (PIIT) and a Nanotechnology Incubator located at the PIIT.

One of our main activities, as a cluster, is to strength the economy of the State through the benefits of the nanotechnology in their different economic sectors such as the automotive industry, materials (ceramic, polymers, glass, cement), metallurgical and metal working industry or nano-bio technologies.
