CEO Tim Harper explains "As a result
of the billions of dollars invested in academic nanoscience
research since 2000, these nanotechnologies are available,
right now, which offer a significant opportunity
for the Indian manufacturing community to make better,
faster, greener and cheaper products while improving
margins and gaining market share. Given the huge
amount of world class nanoscience being performed
in India , we aim to leverage the financial and technical
expertise of the joint venture to enable India to
become a nanotechnology superpower, from contract
research to manufacturing."

actively stimulating the transfer of technologies
to market, YASHNANOTECH and Cientifica will unlock
the vast and immense untapped Indian Nanotechnology
market. With more nanotechnology research shifting
to the corporate world, India 's low costs for highly
skilled manpower & overheads, combined with Cientifica's
world wide knowledge and expertise makes YASHNANOTECH
an obvious choice for the quality contract research
from the rest of the world."
The company is already in advanced talks with a
