The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK’s primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, is pleased to announce that support offered by its events and staff has helped a UK nanomaterials company build its UK and International customer base. With help from the NanoKTN, Intrinsiq, a leading advanced materials solution company, has found a niche market for its copper ink products and is now marketing its solutions in the US.
The NanoKTN’s primary aim is to support organisations and encourage collaboration between academic institutions and UK companies, with the aim of achieving growth in the UK nanotechnology sector. One of the key methods to ensure networking between key market players is to facilitate networking at NanoKTN events. By doing this, the NanoKTN supports the UK supply chain and creates economic wealth for UK industry.
Intrinsiq’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Clark has attended a number of NanoKTN events as both a speaker and a delegate and through networking with business professionals and seeking advice from industry leaders and academics, has been able to build Intrinsiq’s brand and secure interest from the International market.
"The continued advice and support offered by the NanoKTN has allowed us to find an application space where we can make a difference," Clark explains. "Attending the NanoKTN’s events has helped us raise our company profile and build our business portfolio to a point where we can now take our products to a receptive International audience. Taking our copper ink products to the US is a big step for us and we are excited about reaching out to a wider audience."
Intrinsiq will be presenting and exhibiting at this year’s Printed Electronics Conference, the world’s largest event in this area, held in Santa Clara, USA November 30th – December 2nd. Their presentation entitled ‘Breakthrough in Conductive Nanoparticle Inks for Printed Electronics and PV Applications’ will be delivered at the Trade Show Theatre on Dec 1st. At booth number 19, Intrinsiq will have company literature, data sheets and printed samples of its copper ink available for visitors.
