ICCOM consists of a head office and laboratories in Florence and two stations located in the Universities of Pisa and Bari. Reserach areas include fuel cells, nanostructured metal-based materials, high-tech polymeric materials, green chemistry, and molecules of pharmaceutical interest.
The Institute of Electron Technology (ITE) is a major Polish research centre with the primary focus on semiconductor micro- and nanotechnology. The fundamental goal of ITE is to conduct basic and applied research in the area of microelectronics, semiconductor optoelectronics and micromechanics as well as characterisation of semiconductor materials and structures.
IEMN is a research institute created by the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), two universities and an Engineer school of France's northern region. The IEMN scientific activity covers a large domain going from the physics of materials and nanostructures to microwaves, telecommunications and acoustics instrumentation.
The laboratory is a joint effort between IMRE and the Department of Chemistry at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Areas of research are: Molecular catalysis; Biomimetic materials; Energy materials; Carbon materials.
The scientific activities of IMS are grouped into a number of research programs of high scientific and technological interest in materials science, with focus in materials related with nanotechnology (especially magnetic and semiconducting nanostructures), novel superconducting materials, as well as functional materials prepared with soft-chemistry techniques.
Since its foundation in 1992, the IPHT has performed top-rank research and development receiving worldwide appreciation. Its present concentration on photonic technology aims at strengthening its existing scientific and technological competences and to expand into new areas of modern optics. The institute's ambitious goal is to be among the world?s leading developers of photonic technology and its applications.
G-CNN is a multidisciplinary group, internationally recognised in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. G-CNN has wide exsperience and expertise in synthesis, functionalization, processing and characterization of carbon nanotubes. G-CNN is specialized in the development of highly functional advanced nanocomposites.
The aim of this research group is to study systems at the nanometer scale. In particular they study molecules, atomic layers with thickness in the nanometer range and atomically clean surfaces. The group tries to find out which is the atomic or molecular structure and the specific electronic properties derived from the low-dimensionality of the systems.
The development of nanotechnology & bio-medical technology at ITRC focuses on the surface science. To better understand the interactions between the material (majorly silicon based) surface condition and the applied chemical agents under different environmental conditions, ITRC has developed a variety of methods to modify the material surface, to examine the surface characteristic, and to probe the interaction phenomena.
The overall objective of the INTELTEX project is to develop a radically new approach to obtain intelligent textiles combining three innovative functions: continuous measurement of mechanical stresses applied to the textile structure; thermal self regulated textile surfaces; detection of chemicals (toxic volatile solvents).
The IRC is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, University College London and the University of Bristol. The IRC will provide an underpinning interdisciplinary activity in Nanotechnology with the theme of understanding and controlling the physical properties of nanostructures and devices by fabrication at single molecule precision. The primary aim is to establish the IRC as an Internationally leading centre for Nanotechnology
InterNano is an open-source online information clearinghouse for the nanomanufacturing research and development community in the United States. It is designed to provide this community with an array of tools and collections relevant to its work and to the development of viable nanomanufacturing applications.
The Academy has as its main goal to provide a forum for international contact and collaboration and a periodical evaluation of the main developments, advances and promising directions of research in the broad field of the application of quantum mechanics to the study of molecules and macromolecules.
The International Association of Nanotechnology (IANT), is a non-profit organization with the goals to foster scientific research and business development in the areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for the benefits of society.
The creation of a sustainable nanotechnology industry requires meaningful and organized relationships among diverse stakeholders. ICON is aimed at providing such interactions for a broad set of members. Managed by Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology, ICON activities ensure effective nanotechnology stewardship through risk assessment, research and communication.
INL- International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is the first, and so far the only one, fully international research organization in Europe in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It has an international legal framework similar to the few international laboratories in other areas located in Europe like CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research at Geneva, ESO - European Southern Observatory, EMBL - European Molecular Biology Laboratory, ESRF - European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The new laboratory is being established by Portugal and Spain, but in the future will be open to the membership of other countries of Europe and other regions of the world.
Over the last decade, a number of techniques, collectively referred to as Severe Plastic Deformation ('SPD'), have emerged as a promising approach for the production of bulk ultrafine-grained materials. The nanoSPD Steering Committee serves to coordinate research efforts in nanoSPD and to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and information relating to all aspects of the nanoSPD field.
ISO Committee TC 229 addresses standardization in the field of nanotechnologies. Specific tasks include developing standards for: terminology and nomenclature; metrology and instrumentation, including specifications for reference materials; test methodologies; modelling and simulations; and science-based health, safety, and environmental practices.
