South African Nanotechnology Initiative
The SANi is an organised network of academics, researchers and engineers from universities, the private sector and research councils with the common goal of involving South Africa in the emerging field of Nanotechnology and Nanoscience.
SANi aims to commercialize nanotechnology research. Through this initiative we are able to not only gain more knowledge but about create income opportunities for our members researchers.
We are endorsed by the Department Of Science and Technology.
It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Nano Technology Start Up Finding Opportunities
The South African National Nanotechnology Strategy focuses on four priority areas of intervention: the establishment of characterisation centres (national multi-user facilities), the creation of research and innovation networks (to enhance interdisciplinary, national and international collaboration), the building of human capacity, and the establishment of flagship projects (to demonstrate the benefits of nanotechnology).
