Value4Nano Survey Needs Your Input

The recently started Value4Nano project is looking for your input to help foster the responsible development of nanotechnologies, products and services in the European Union. To help guide the project it has just launched a survey covering issues, uses and technical and market development in the sector. 

The Value4Nano project is a Coordinated Support Action funded by the European Commission under FP7 with the aim of delivering recommendations for future programme topics in the area of nanotechnologies. The full name of the project is “Industrial valorization of strategic value chains for nano-enabled products.” The project is funded for two years from September 2013 to August 2015.

The survey consists of a short questionnaire and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete and share your experience of the sector. The closing date for the survey is 20 December 2013.

What is Value4Nano?
The Value4Nano project aims to develop an Implementation Roadmap for four value chains and their target products. The Roadmap will include business modelling and planning for a set of pilot lines and it will involve strategic industrial and other stakeholders.

The four target value chains and their target products are:

  • Nano and micro printing for industrial manufacturing
  • Nano-enabled, depollutant and self-cleaning surfaces
  • Manufacturing of powders made from functional alloys, ceramics and intermetallics
  • Lightweight multifunctional materials and composites for transportation
