"Our government proposes to establish a state-of-the-art Nano Park in Bangalore, which will have nano incubation centre along with necessary physical infrastructure and support system including common facilities," Siddaramaih said at the inauguration of '6th Bangalore India Nano' in Bangalore.
    
"I'm sure that this initiative will give a major fillip to the nanotechnology industry to blossom in the state in the coming years," he added.
    
It was inaugurated in the presence of eminent scientist, Bharat Ratna awardee CNR Rao and Nobel Laureate Sir Andre Geim. The event is being organized by the Department of IT, BT, S&T - Government of Karnataka and Vision group on Nanotechnology.
    
Siddaramaiah said that the Indian Institute of Nano Sciences and Technology is being established in Bangalore with the funding support from Union Government under the nano mission at an estimated cost of Rs 100 crore.
        
The state government has already allocated 14 acres on Tumkur road for locating this institute, he pointed out.
    
Stating that Bangalore has always been a trend setter in encouraging new wave of industrial development, he said, "In knowledge-based industrial development, Bangalore has reached iconic stature. I am delighted to state that the city is acclaimed as one of the top 10 Technopolises in the world."
    
Calling on scientists to come up with tangible nano-technology-based solutions for food security, energy security, water purification, medicine and health care, the Karnataka CM said, "The ultimate purpose of science and research should be to address the huge challenge in these areas."
    
Rao said that India is number three in the world in the area of nano sciences and commended the contribution of institutes like Indian Institute of Science and Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research.
    
He said, "We have made reasonable progress; we have a long way to go. We should not forget the importance of science. Science should also focus on solving human problems and improve the quality of life," he said.

    Excellent - Hope same feat is emulated in TRIPURA too !! Hope much needed ECONOMIC VIBRANCY (like Bangalore, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad) is created in AGARTALA (to emerge as new CYBER CITY of India!) with setting up of World Class Infrastructures. Really hope leadership in CENTER, TRIPURA Govt and Other Concerned DIGNITARIES takes a FUTURISTIC and PROGRESSIVE approach and goes BIG to put TRIPURA in the GLOBAL IT RADAR and transform into next IT and Technology powerhouse of INDIA !! Really hope BUSINESS CONGLOMERATES establishes their presence in TRIPURA which shares boundaries with Bangladesh and have a direct proximity (through Mizoram) with Myanmar! Not a single High Tech corporate, Big IT MNCs, Renowned HOSPITAL Chains, BEST of Higher Educational Institutes, World Class (5 Star) Hotels and Luxury Shopping Malls have presence in TRIPURA - Being the 2nd highest POPULUS state in NE and literacy rate crossing 90% (no of unemployment stands 6 lakhs!), need of the hour is to set up IT zones, Industrial corridors (in the line of DELHI-MUMBAI, MUMBAI - BANGALORE corridors) with invitation to Big IT MNCs (IBM,Accenture,TCS, Infosys, Wipro,HCL,Cognizant), World Class Hospital Chains (FORTIS, APPOLO,MANIPAL), World Class Hotel Chains (Taj, Leela, Oberoi, ITC), world class Retail outlet chains (Walmart, IKEA, Pantaloons,Shoppers Stop, Croma, Reliance Retail etc) to set up their presence at AGARTALA!
