Next up: Carl Kohrt, CEO Battelle

Keynote for today is Carl Kohrt, CEO of Battelle, the giant research organization that runs three US national labs. He is describing their alliance with Foresight on the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems, their own (large) Battelle Nanotechnology Innovation Network, how these relate to the Foresight Challenges, and his projections for what’s coming in the over-ten-year timeframe: quantum computers, molecular manufacturing systems, and nanostructured fuel cell systems. He pointed to the need for “IP Pooling” to accelerate commercialization. —Christine
