Organizers said this marked the first such nano-project and focus on
the use of carbon, gold and silver to enhance energy harvesting and
conservation. They identified the participating universities as Israel's
Hebrew University, Ben-Gurion University and Singapore's Nanyang
In the second stage, Israel and Singapore would patent and market energy
