CHICAGO, IL (May 5, 2017) – BioForce Nanosciences, Inc. will soon finalize its technological collaboration agreement with the Indian Institute of Technology (“IIT”) in Kanpur, India. The Agreement with the National Center for Flexible Electronics (“NCFlexE”) will support the research, development, and advancement of activities in the area of organic and printable electronics.
“This arrangement further expands our activities in India as we increase our installed base of the Nano eNabler Benchtop Molecular Printer across many IIT campuses throughout India,” stated long-time President & COO, Kerry Frey. “We anticipate a variety of new opportunities for technical development in the area of flexible electronics. The Nano eNabler (“NeN”) is going to be essential in the next wave of flexible electronics development and this collaboration with IIT will further demonstrate that the NeN would benefit all those involved in the flexible electronics field.”
AddedProf. Monica Katiyar, Coordinator of NCFlexE, IIT Kanpur: “This agreement is part of a broader effort to develop partner agreements with a number of the industry’s leaders. We are excited to formalize our collaboration with BioForce Nanosciences to advance the power and research capabilities of the Nano eNabler and unlock the full potential of the instrument.”
