First "Business of Nanotechnology" course

Update: see this correction for an even earlier course: http://new.foresight.org/nanodot/?p=1958 –CP

To our knowledge, this is the first college course on nanotechnology from a business perspective, being taught at UC Berkeley by Tom Kalil and Drew Isaacs: “Offered for the first time in Fall, 2005, this is UC Berkeley’s first course focused on nanotechnology-based business opportunities. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the core elements in this emerging field, specifically the scientific and technical basis of nanotechnology, the emerging business opportunities, and the policy issues that represent both threats and opportunities to nanotechnology investors, innovators, and entrepreneurs.” Tom Kalil was one of the architects of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative. The course is expected to be heavily oversubscribed.
