Regulating Nanotechnologies in the EU and US is a collaborative research project involving researchers from LSE, Chatham House, Environmental Law Institute and The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Its goal is to investigate the regulatory challenges posed by nanotechnologies and to assess the effectiveness of existing approaches on both sides of the Atlantic.
Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
INSAT runs projects under a matrix structure pulling on resources from within the university and external partners to combine expertise and skills in pursuing a specific set of goals and objectives. A culture of teamwork, knowledge sharing, and connectivity with users provides INSAT with its frontier research in nanotechnology development.
Research activities in the group encompass a wide range of themes at the cutting-edge of nanoscale science and nanotechnology - principal interests lie in the synthesis and characterisation of new nanomaterials, such as nanodiamonds, silicon nanocrystals, gold nitride (AuN) and photon reactions on ice.
A multi-disciplinary group at the University of Oxford with members from Chemistry, Materials Science, Physics and Biochemistry. The group has been active in the field of nanotube research for over 10 years.
The University of Oxford is a long-established and universally recognised centre for nanotechnology research. A range of research projects focusing on nanomaterials, particles, fibres, devices and films and arrays, are carried out across the University departments of Materials, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Science, Physiology, Pathology and Biochemistry.
