49 Nano-Based Products in Iran Receive Nano Scale Confirmation http://www.islamicinvitationturkey.com/2011/08/20/49-nano-based-products-in-iran-receive-nano-scale-confirmation/
49 products in the field of nanotechnology in Iran have so far been granted the scale confirmation from the Nano Scale Station of Corridor of Technology Services to Market, Iran’s Nanotechnology Initiative Council announced on Saturday. According to Qassem Jaffari, the head of companies’ affairs in the Corridor of Technology to Market Services, 139 files have so far been issued for the companies in the Nano Scale Station of the Corridor. 184 products produced by those companies have requested to obtain the nano scale confirmation in a bid to receive the Corridor’s support.
“After the investigation carried out by the Nano Scale Station, 49 products out of 184 succeeded in obtaining the nano scale confirmation,” he added. “Those companies and their products will enter the next path in the corridor after obtaining the confirmation. In the next path, they will receive various services for technology development, and they will move towards the commercialization of their products,” Jaffari stated. Being the first station in the Corridor, Nano Scale Station is in charge of evaluating and assessing the scale of materials and the products of companies. In case the nanoscale of the materials is proven, the Station will issue the confirmation for the industrial products.
The Corridor of Technology to Market Services is a section that has been established by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council in order to discover, organize, and complete the missing links in the field of the commercialization of nanotechnology products. The structure of this section consists of 16 stations, and it provides the knowledge-based companies with the required technology development services in order to facilitate the commercialization process.
