ASME establishes nanotech "virtual institute"

from the engineering-the-future dept.
The July 2001 issue of ASME News, a newsletter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, reports that the ASME Board of Governors has approved development funding for a virtual institute — a clearinghouse for ASME's nanotechnology-related activities.
The purpose of the institute will be to provide international forums for technology transfer in the design, synthesis, manipulation and control of nanoscale systems. A goal for the Institute is support for nanotechnology design and development and the commercialization of the products and processes that use nanotechnology. It will also promote ASME as a leading engineering society for the practical application of nanotechnology as well as for the interdisciplinary engineers and scientists who will serve as the systems integrators.
