What Is Nanotechnology and What’s In It For Us



What Is Nanotechnology and What's In It For Us?
PEO York Chapter
Wednesday, October 16, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EDT)
Richmond Hill, ON

Event Details:

Results from nanotech investigations relentlessly predict that "nano" possesses a minimum of as much potential as plastic materials had over half a century ago. Applications range from self-cleaning windows to targeted cancer therapy as well as from space elevators to autonomous nano-robot (nanobot) colonies. Tireless efforts of the government, industry and academia are spent towards making such nanotechnological advancements functional and accessible. However, there are currently no long-term health and environmental affect studies. Neither is there an international consensus on how to even classify a nanomaterial. This seminar will help to improve the awareness of "nano" as well as to hopefully better engage public opinion in future nanotech developments and policy.

An overview of nanotechnological developments to date, including:
* current examples from a range of industries 

* examples of potential future applications 

* regulating impact

Our Guest speaker is Dmitry Maznichenko is a researcher and president of Open NDTM, which currently manufactures nano-enhanced materials for an increasing variety of applications. His has received funding from several programs and collaborates across the industry, government and academia sectors. Dmitry's graduated from Ryerson University with B.Eng. in mechanical engineering. His graduate research was in the multi-disciplinary field of nanotechnology which included molecular chemistry and laser physics (Ryerson). Dmitry is also passionate about teaching and fostering sustainable communities.

Friends are also welcome to this event; networking is encouraged!

Pub snacks will be served. Beverages will be available for purchase from the venue.

**Note: Please drink responsibly and arrange for a safe ride home
