The NIA is working closely with regulators and policy makers to realise the full potential of nanotechnology and secure the full economic and societal benefits through identifying and roadmapping unique areas of potential competitive advantage using nanotechnology.
NIA Forecast of Emerging Technologies
The support of an ongoing advancement of nanotechnology research, development and commercialisation is central to the NIA’s role as a key-contact point between regulators and policy makers on one hand and the growing nanotechnology industries on the other; through identifying and forecasting unique areas of potential competitive advantage using nanotechnology, the NIA helps to secure the full economic and societal benefits of this exiting field of emerging technologies.
The NIA Forecast of Emerging Technologies provides a purely industry-led forecast, which makes exclusive use of data obtained from the industrial members of the NIA, thereby delivering a clear outline of the industrial development path for nanotechnology and its advancement over the next 15 years into more complex nanomaterials, structures and systems. The forecast examines the existing opinion of the economic potential for nanotechnologies and provides a 2020-view of the emerging technologies’ impact…..
