The EuroNanoBio partners explored the definition, establishment and further development of a European scale infrastructure on nanobiotechnology and the associated realistic implementation plan. It aimed at defining not only the key features of a potential European infrastructure in nanobiotechnology, but it has also established the way it should be designed.

A worldwide expert survey on 20 future developments in Nanobiotechnology has been conducted as part of the Foresight activity within the EU network of excellence "Nano-to-Life". 139 experts from 30 countries participated in the survey. For each development the experts assessed the likely year of realization, impact on science and technology, environment, quality of life and the labor market, and commercialization prospects in medicine, security, environment, agro-food and consumer products.

This paper is a combination of three tutorials with an outlined series of technologies, including microfluidics, nanotechnologies, and molecular imaging methods, and the authors describe how their development should be driven by the needs of systems biology. They also discuss how these technologies can enable a systems biology approach through a pathway from single cells to mouse models of disease and finally to patients.
