GreenFacts is an independent non-profit organization with a multi-stakeholder governance and a non-advocacy policy. Their mission is to bring complex scientific reports on health and the environment to the reach of non-specialists. One of the focus areas is nanotechnologies.
Dans le domaine porteur des micro et nanotechnologies, les 3 universités/écoles d'ingénieur Grenoble INP, Politecnico di Torino et Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) ont mis en place depuis 2004 une formation conjointe d'ingénieur/master.
A 2-year international course born of the collaboration between three European engineering institutes: Institut national polytechnique de Grenoble (France), cole polytechnique fdrale de Lausanne (Suisse) and Politecnico di Torino (Italy).
Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre is a science and engineering research centre investigating micro- and nanotechnology problems that are integral to the development of clean and intelligent systems. QMNC brings together researchers with expertise in the fundamental theory of materials, materials development, sensing, microelectronic engineering and microtechnology, across the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Engineering. The QMNC has four principal research themes: 1)Sustainable energy technologies; 2) Novel devices and materials; 3) Complex systems and signals; 4)Theory and modelling
The participants in the Consortium of Maine Biological Nanotechnology Effort Consortium (MBNE) cuts across the fields of marine science, bioengineering, astrobiology, medicine and ecucation. This site is an introduction to biological nanotechnology.
The Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology at the Harvard School of Public Health draws on decades of experience with environmental pollutants and the health effects of particles to address the unique environmental health and safety (EHS) concerns raised by engineered nanomaterials (ENM) and nanotechnology applications.
The Westervelt Group has three areas of focus: 1) Imaging the coherent flow of electrons inside semiconductor nanostructures at low temperatures using scanning probe microscopy; 2) Studies of tunnel-coupled quantum dots and the fabrication of artificial molecules composed of few-electron quantum dots to implement qubits for quantum information processing; 3) Development of micro-electromagnets to trap, move, and assemble particles.
The Zhuang research lab works on the forefront of single-molecule biology and bioimaging, developing and applying advanced optical imaging techniques to study the behavior of individual biological molecules and complexes in vitro and in live cells.
The main focus of the new HSPH-NIEHS Center is to bring together scientists from across disciplines- material science, chemistry, exposure assessment, risk assessment, nanotoxicology and nanobiology- to assess the potential environmental Health and safety (EHS) implications of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).
The research of the group is focused on energy and sustainability. The research encompasses design, synthesis, functionalization, and self-assembly of nanoscale materials for applications in plasmonics, photonics, electronics, sensing, separation, and medicine. Using wet chemistry, electrospinning, physical deposition and their combinations, they aim to create nanomaterials and nanocomposites (e.g. metal, metal oxide, polymer, etc.) with diverse multifunctional properties for new technological applications.
The NanoMaterials Group is among the top aerosol technology laboratories in the world and offers a unique environment for strong interdisciplinary research and a proven track record of productive cooperation. The main research areas of the group are synthesis and mechanistic studies of formation of carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles, pharmaceutical materials, electron microscopy, and computational fluid dynamics modelling.
