The goals of the SNNI are to develop new nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing approaches that offer a high level of performance, yet pose minimal harm to human health or the environment.
SnIRC is based on existing collaborations between the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburgh, Napier University, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh University and the US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The SANDiE Network of Excellence is dedicated to the formation of an integrated and cohesive approach to research and knowledge in the field of Self-Assembled semiconductor Nanostructures.
The project is based on the observation that diatoms, which are small unicellular algae, possess internal silica skeletons that are laid down due to the silica precipitating activity of specialised proteins called silaffins. These proteins have a highly repeating structure in which the repeated sequences are decorated with additional amine and phosphate groups. Whilst silaffins themselves are potent silica precipitants, synthetic peptides corresponding to these repeats will also act as silicating agents and will allow silica nanoparticles to be generated, provided phosphate is also supplied.
The general objective of this EU-funded project is the safe, integrated and controlled production of high-tech multifunctional nano-structured products including their recycling, and ensuring competitiveness.
The scientific goal of the EUROCORES Program SONS is to develop cross-disciplinary research at the interface between Chemistry, Materials Science, Nanoscience, Physics and Electrical Engineering. This research program concerns the utilization of supramolecular interactions for the synthesis and positioning of functional assemblies, macromolecules, dendrimers, liquid crystals, tailor-made polymers and inorganic nanoparticles.
Semi is the global association for suppliers enabling nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing technologies.
The core objective of the 'Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies (NMP)' theme is to improve the competitiveness of European industry and generate the knowledge needed to transform it from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive industry.
The mission of SNPC is to promote the development of nanotechnology in Shanghai.
SINANO (Silicon-based Nanodevices) aims to strengthen European scientific and technological excellence in the field of electronics, Si-based nanodevices for terascale integrated circuits. This project is funded by the European Commission under the sixth EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
The core objective of the 'Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and new Production Technologies (NMP)' theme is to improve the competitiveness of European industry and generate the knowledge needed to transform it from a resource-intensive to a knowledge-intensive industry.
SMASH is a research project supported by the European Commission in the 7th Framework Programme. The overall goal of SMASH is to establish new materials solutions and process technologies based on nanostructured compound semiconductors, i.e. GaN, for low-cost, power-efficient light sources for the general lighting market.
The overarching goals of the group are: to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge among practitioners, researchers, scholars, teachers, and others interested in risk analysis and emerging nanoscale materials; to encourage collaborative research on risk analysis and emerging nanoscale materials; and to provide leadership and play an active role in advancing issues related to risk analysis and emerging nanoscale materials.
The founding of the Society will coincide with its first annual conference in Seattle (September 2009). The Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies (S-NET) is poised to become an international organization to promote open intellectual exchange towards the advancement of knowledge and understanding of nanotechnologies in society. S-NET represents diverse communities, viewpoints, and methodologies in the social sciences and humanities. It welcomes contributions from scientists and engineers that advance the critical reflection of nanotechnologies and related developments.
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry is a not-for-profit, worldwide professional organization comprised of individuals and institutions dedicated to the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, research and development and environmental education. Our mission is to support the development of principles and practices for protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity.
A number of universities, science councils and industrial companies active in nanotechnology formed SANi
A biophotonic micro-laboratory: Novel applications of all-optically micro-fluidic lab-on-a-chip devices. Optical tools for parallel manipulation of objects and optical trapping of objects with multiple-beam optical manipulators.
The Spanish Nanomedicine Platforms is an initiative aiming to agregate the main Spanish players in research, the industry and the public administration, with the final objective to boost the implementation of strategic lines in the nanomedicine field, characterized by its interdisciplinarity.
'Surface Plasmon Early Detection of Circulation Heat Shock Proteins' (SPEDOC) is a multidisciplinary European FP7 research project for early diagnosis, treatment monitoring and follow-up of cancer at the level of oncology research institutes. The goal of this three year project is the early detection of cancer by combining the latest advances of nano-optics, optical manipulation and microfluidics with the ultimate findings on the heat shock protein HSP70-recently shown to increase its expression in cancer cells. Ultrasensitive tracking of HSP70 proteins may yield to future devices enabling point of care diagnosis and eventually lead to individualized therapy.
The aim of this European research project is to study nanoscale self-assembly in two systems. Both use surfactant micelles as a template structure to hierarchically order polyelectrolytes on several length scales.
The Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology envisions being the leading Research and Innovation platform for Sustainable Nanotechnology in Asia. Thereby transforming Sri Lanka into a strong Nanotechnology-focused nation.
Part of the EU 'New Emerging Science and Technology' Programme, SIBMAR aims at high resolution structural information of individual biological molecules by employing coherent low energy electron waves.
The EU funded STREP project SUBTLE is associated with nanoelectronic devices in which quantum-confined electron channels are so closely spaced to each other that tailored feedback action exists. The approach of SUBTLE is based on the application of two effects in miniaturized electronics, which one usually tries to avoid in device design: back-action of the channel on the gate and noise induced switching.
The Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) is a non-profit, worldwide professional society comprised of individuals and institutions that are engaged in: Research and development of sustainable nanotechnology; Implications of nanotechnology for Environment, Health, and Safety; Advances in nanoscience, methods, protocols and metrology; Education and understanding of sustainable nanotechnology; Applications of nanotechnology for sustainability. SNO's purpose is to provide a professional society forum to advance knowledge in all aspects of sustainable nanotechnology, including both applications and implications.
SustainComp is a large scale collaborative project financed by the European Commission. The project aims at developing new types of sustainable composite materials for a wide range of applications and has the ambition to integrate today's large enterprises on the raw material and end-use sides. (e.g. pulp mills and packaging manufacturers) and small and medium sized enterprises on the composite processing side (e.g. compounders and composite manufacturers).
