Nano Bridge

nanoBridge is a pan-Alberta prototype and people development initiative, administered by the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta. The initiative supports early-stage commercialization activities in microsystems and nanotechnology (MNT) by providing funding to Alberta’s academic, institutional and industrial communities to develop new products and processes. Formed initially in 2000 as the Microsystems Technology Research Initiative (MSTRI), nanoBridge is now in its third round of funding (Phase III) to 2013. .
