The nanotechnology innovation ecosystem within the U.S. remains firmly anchored by the fundamental science activities supported by federal and state government investments, being well positioned to accelerate the commercialization path for nano-enabled products. Effective technology transfer of translational R&D from laboratory proof-of-concept and prototype demonstrations remains a significant barrier to rapid commercial scale-up, and numerous models have emerged to better support this critical stage of the innovation cycle, including regional and state models for stakeholder networks providing the critical connections between academic research, investors, and entrepreneurs. While measures of success for an innovation ecosystem are not always so easily derived, the approach of connecting capital, resources, and leadership with good science remains an enduring model which continues to shape the future for the commercialization of nanotechnology, with nanomanufacturing firmly embedded within the framework of advanced manufacturing in the U.S. Beneq's industrial thin film coating, nanotechnology and sustainability, and metallic nanoparticles are also discussed.
