Corporate Member Testimonials

"Our membership in IoN provides us with industry news and opportunities to participate in nano technology projects and identify capability partners."

Mark Graham, Director, Endeavour Aerospace

"The main reason for us to join IoN was to have practical support for getting into FP7 (FP8 after 2013). Even though the Centre of Physics at Minho is rather big, at least in Portuguese scale, and interdisciplinary, we have not been very active and successful with European projects and this has to be changed. Therefore we are looking for assistance with finding partners, writing proposals, etc in the fields related to nanotechnology. Now we are discovering other advantages, such as webinars."

Professor Mikhail Vasilevskiy, Director of the Center of Physics, University of Minho

"The forum view the IoN as a key network for members to access the knowledge and expertise which is needed to responsibly develop Occupational Health and Safety guidance. Being a corporate member of the IoN also provides this forum with a valuable route to raising awareness amongst the global nanotechnology sector of their aims and partners in creating this guidance document."

June Freeland, Chair of the UK Nanosafety Forum

"IoN provides an invaluable opportunity to learn about emerging nanotechnologies, network with nano innovators, exchange information on regulatory, science, and policy issues, and share thoughts and conversation on topics of mutual interest. As a law firm deeply committed to the nano community, our corporate membership in IoN is one of our firmís most valuable assets."

Lynn L. Bergeson, Esquire, Principal, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

"Exilica values it's membership of the Institute of Nanotechnology and has appreciated the support that the Institute has offered for the years that Exilica has been a member. Where possible Exilica has contributed to IoN conferences, utilising opportunities provided by the IoN. Exilica also appreciates the role of the NanoMicroClub and the support that it has offered through the years. For these reasons, and a few more, Exilica was happy to renew its membership in the IoN for another year."

Dr Daniel Lynch, Technical Director, Exilica

"The National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the UKís National Measurement Institute, has been an active member of the Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) since its inception. NPL has found the IoN an invaluable source of information regarding nanotechnology and its impact, and it provides a forum in which researchers can exchange ideas about products, services and standards. NPL is also actively involved in a range of nanotechnology research projects and is one of the key players in the standardisation efforts - partnering with the IoN in this arena is a natural collaboration. NPL also brings a number of institutions and societies to the IoN forum, for example euspen; the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining and the Institute of Physics. The IoN also has an extensive worldwide network of contacts which NPL finds invaluable for developing new project and partnerships."

Dr Kamal Hossain, Director of Research & International Co-operation

"Izon Science Ltd are a New Zealand based company, and in September 2010 we opened an office in Oxford under a UK subsidiary company to facilitate access and service to customers in the UK, Ireland and European markets (not very timezone friendly from New Zealand!). Joining the IoN as a corporate member is very useful for us to promote our new presence in the UK nanotechnology market as a UK company in particular. Also to help raise our profile within the nanotechnology community here and to allow us to network with researchers and other business who may benefit from our technology."

Anne Barnett, Business Development Manager, UK & Europe, Izon Science Ltd

"Being a corporate member the Institute of Nanotechnology has been really beneficial in achieving the aims of the KTA. Specifically, involvement in joint networking events with the institute has had real impact in increasing the number of companies we are engaging with.

Dr Neil Bowering, Manager, KTA

"In a world of information and change, it is essential to keep yourself up to date and move with frontiers of knowledge which may be achieved by communications, which is why we have joined the IoN as a Corporate Member."

Arash Kamankesh, Production manager, Artash Composite co.

"EnviroGene has developed a highly functional multi-point tracing system based on nano-particles. It recently joined the Institute of Nanotechnology as a corporate member so as to have access to the Institute's network of members and contacts, and to be able to evaluate potential technology partners and develop new commercial contacts in both the oil/gas and environmental markets."

Alex Korda, Chairman, Envirogene

"To stay abreast in this fast-changing area, it is critical to be a member of the Institute of Nanotechnology. Its broad range of activities and the depth of its understanding of the nano landscape make IoN's offerings unparalleled and essential. IoN's leadership in virtually all aspects of the responsible development of nanotechnology make IoN's role in this area all the more pivotal. That is why B&C joined IoN--to stay in touch, continue its leadership role, and to support an organization that provides essential and timely leadership, information, and networking opportunities."

Lynn L. Bergeson, founding member of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C

"In a constantly evolving and dynamic landscape, we see the IoN as a key network for members to access the knowledge and expertise they need to responsibly develop nanotechnology.
