Connecticut report recommends state nano investment

May 5, 2005 — According to a state-commissioned report to be released today, Connecticut could gain 31,000 jobs over the next nine years if it becomes more competitive in landing research and development money in nanotechnology.

The report recommends that the state create a fund of $15 million to $25 million to provide matching money that would help Connecticut universities and companies land federal grants worth tens of millions of dollars, and establish educational initiatives to develop a skilled nanotechnology workforce.
