Micro and Nanotechnology Commercialization Foundation (MANCEF)


The Micro and Nanotechnology Commercialization Education Foundation (MANCEF) is the world's only not-for-profit, volunteer education foundation globally reaching the people, organizations, and governments interested in commercializing miniaturization technologies.

We provide networking opportunities, industry/government partnerships, commercialization workshops/conferences/proceedings, industry roadmaps, and student scholarships at regional, national, and international levels. Via the world's first International Micro-Nano Roadmap, MANCEF's membership continues to provide the direction to firms for the commercialization of Micro and Nano scale devices, structures, and systems across all known markets.

MANCEF also sponsors events and projects providing knowledge capital to workforces, companies, and entrepreneurs building the infrastructure supporting Micro-Nano commercialization opportunities.

Please stop by our booth at any of the events sponsored by MANCEF to find out how our global membership could be linked to your commercialization and/or educational success with Micro-Nano technologies.

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

NISTFrom automated teller machines and atomic clocks to mammograms and semiconductors, innumerable products and services rely in some way on technology, measurement, and standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Founded in 1901, NIST is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Commerce Department's Technology Administration. NIST's mission is to develop and promote measurement, standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate trade, and improve the quality of life. NIST carries out its mission in four cooperative programs:

NIST has an operating budget of about $771 million and operates in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and Boulder, Colorado. NIST employs about 3,000 scientists, engineers, technicians, and support and administrative personnel. About 1,800 guest researchers complement the staff. In addition, NIST partners with 2,000 manufacturing specialists and staff at affiliated centers around the country.
