This event will be co-sponsored by Winstead Sechrest & Minick P.C. "An event of this quality and magnitude is drawing world-wide attention to Texas," says Kelly Kordzik, chairman of the Nanotechnology Practice Group at Winstead and president of the Texas Nanotechnology Initiative.
"There are 40 countries with state sponsored nanotechnology programs, including Japan, United Kingdom, Korea, Canada, Australia, France and the list keeps growing."Kordzik
will present with the governor's Deputy Chief of Staff, Phil Wilson, and Director of the Texas Emerging Technology Fund
, Mark Ellison, at nanoTX'06
in Dallas where they will discuss the Texas Emerging Technology Fund
and strategies to push such an effort through a legislature that is heavily focused on other budgetary items.
"Technologists and business leaders from around the country have been requesting detailed information on how the Texas governor's office launched the Emerging Technology Fund," Kordzik
explains, referring to the $200 million fund for research and development activities in emerging technology industries.
