UMass to build nanotech training ground

UMass wins $5 million nanotech dev't grant (Boston Business Journal)

    The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative awarded a $5 million grant to the University of Massachusetts Lowell on Monday to create a new research and development facility specialized in nanotechnology.

    ... Pat Larkin, the MTC's director, said Monday's award will be delivered over the next five years. "The extraordinary size of this particular grant is due to the significance of the state's emerging opportunity in nanotechnology," he said.

    UMass will use the funds to develop a Center of Excellence in Nanomanufacturing at its Lowell campus. The center will primarily focus on the commercialization of nanotechnology inventions while also providing a fertile training ground for prospective engineers and researchers, Larkin said. More here
