NanoOPS at Northeastern University

InterNano Industry News - August 20, 2017 - 3:45am
WTEC.org has published a short film on YouTube. Their website is here. From their website: “WTEC is the nation’s leading organization in conducting international technology assessments. During the 1990s, it was called the World Technology Evaluation Center (WTEC) Division of Loyola University Maryland. In 2001, WTEC was spun off into a separate nonprofit corporation by R. D. Shelton. WTEC now also provides other services to public and private sector clients.”
