FutureNanoNeeds Online Survey 2017

The NANOfutures initiative has launched an online survey to validate the findings regarding value chains centred on key nanomaterials generated within the context of the EU FP7 project FutureNanoNeeds. The questionnaire is online available until 17th March 2017!

 

NANOfutures is involved in FutureNanoNeeds (www.futurenanoneeds.eu), a project funded by the European Commission under FP7. It aims at developing a novel framework to enable naming, classification, hazard and environmental impact assessment of the next generation nanomaterials prior to their widespread industrial use.

As part of the tasks performed by NANOfutures in this project, a set of value chains centred on key nanomaterials has been defined, including general descriptions of nanomaterials in terms of key properties and of the target applications and final products. Also, advantages with respect to state-of-the art materials or competing nanomaterials were summarised and current Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of the value chain were also estimated. Market analysis was described in details for each value chains, estimating market size, trends, geographical distribution, and segmentation by technology/material and by application and top companies.
