Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is an enabling technology that spans many industry sectors, and often includes fundamental, breakthrough innovations. With this in mind, it is imperative that nanotechnology innovators leverage their success in order to overcome the costs of lengthy and capital-intensive R&D cycles. This places the utmost importance on intellectual-property strategies, and the development of a high-quality patent portfolio.
