Nano @ Penn State has been created as a portal to access the breadth of nanotechnology research at the University.
The project's goal is to develop advanced nanocomposites materials used in civil constructions with antibacterial, selfcleaning properties and solar energy concentrators integrated structures for ambiental improvement.
This project uses econometric methods to estimate the impact of nanoscale science and technology (nano S&T) research, and associated interdisciplinary research, directly on firms' entry and success and hence on U.S. economic growth, standard of living, and competitiveness.
NanoBio-RAISE combines ethics research in nanobiotechnology with science communication. This interdisciplinary project brings together nanobiotechnologists, ethicists and communication specialists with the aims to anticipate the societal and ethical issues likely to arise as nanobiotechnologies develop and to use the lessons from the GM debate to respond to the probable public concerns. NanoBio-RAISE is a 6th Framework Programme project.
The main objective of the project is to establish the scientific and technological basis for the development new intelligent composite scaffold for bone tissue repair and regeneration with bioactive behavior capable of activating osteoprogenitor cells and genes and within an in vivo environment provide the interface to respond to physiological and biological changes, with mechanical and structural properties similar to a healthy bone and with size and shape required for reconstructing big skeletal defects.
The Nanobioengineering Research Laboratory, a collaboration between the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), is a multidisciplinary centre belonging to the Catalan Bioengineering Institute (IBEC) in which joint research on the applications of nanotecnology to biology and biomedicine is carried out.
The project aims to support SMEs, their suppliers, service suppliers and research institutes in their decision making when developing and producing polymeric nanobiomaterials for drug delivery by implementing a Safe-by-Design (SbD) approach. Moreover, the regulatory framework for the topic at hand and safety aspects during the product's life-cycle are included.
A group of conceiving inventing and utilizing optical microscopes with resolution at the nanometer scale to advance life sciences.
The Case Western reserve University nanoBook is an interactive directory that highlights the ongoing nanoscience/nanotechnolgy research activities of our faculty across the university. Please browse through the nanoBook by faculty last name, department, or by choosing a field of interest.
The NANOCAGE project brings together a number of leading European nanoscience groups on a research problem which involves not only a novel materials system but a variety of cutting edge spectroscopic techniques. Interpretation of the spectroscopic measurements will in turn be facilitated by the application of a number of powerful theoretical methods. This combination of interdisciplinary research, challenging experimental techniques, an exotic materials system, and comprehensive theoretical work provides an exceptionally strong PhD training programme in nanoscience.
NanoCap is a European project that is set up to deepen the understanding of environmental, occupational health and safety risks and ethical aspects of nanotechnology. Therefore a structured discussion is organised between environmental NGOs, trade unions, academic researchers and other stakeholders. NanoCap is the acronym for 'Nanotechnology Capacity Building NGOs'. This project will enable environmental NGOs and trade unions to participate in a debate on nanotechnology at European level.
The project NANOCAPS will develop new technologies based on micro-encapsulation to solve industrial problems related to controlled release of chemicals.
(Site in German) NanoCare is a joint project of German industry, universities and research institutes to gain scientific knowledge about potential health risks of engineered nanoparticles.
A EU-funded project for the development of very high performance bio-derived composite materials of cellulose nanofibres and polysaccharides.
The EU FP7 NanoCharM project (Multifunctional NanoMaterials Characterization exploiting Ellipsometry and Polarimetry) will promote and develop the use of non-destructive characterization of nanomaterials using polarimetry and ellipsometry techniques.
The intellectual merit of this NSF-funded program is based on the creation of new knowledge in four areas: (a) the synthesis and extension of existing knowledge about ethical issues in nanotechnology research and applications; (b) the synthesis and extension of existing knowledge about environmental, health, safety, and security impacts of nanotechnology; (c) documentation of the levels and changes over time of the geographic distribution within the US and among countries of nanotechnology-related patents; and (d) development and validation of the empirical relevance for policy, research, and public information of NanoIndicators.
NanoCore is a Singapore-based interdisciplinary research collaboration in the science and technology of the nano-scale. NanoCore is funded and housed by the National University of Singapore.
This European project's goal is to establish new methodologies (high-resolution ion microscopy, radiotracer) on skin cross sections to study the quality of skin as a barrier against formulations containing nanoparticles.
The main objective of this FP7 project is a development and validation of technologies for the detection and analysis of single nanoparticles in complex environments. The project is based on the new experimental phenomenon discovered recently by one of the project partners: single sub-wavelength objects give rise to optical signals in surface plasmon resonance microscopy.
The main project goal is to develop innovative concepts and reliable methods for characterizing engineered nanoparticles in workplace air with novel, portable and easy-to-use devices suitable for workplaces.
Development of Novel Nanotechnology Based Diagnostic Systems for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis (NanoDiaRA). The main objective of this large-scale integrating project is the development of modified superparamagnetic nanoparticles as a diagnostic tool for the detection of early stages of arthritis. In addition to research, the project will consider the social, ethical and legal aspects of applying nanotechnology for medical purposes.
The European FP7 project NanoDiode, launched in July 2013 for a period of three years, establishes an innovative, coordinated programme for outreach and dialogue throughout Europe so as to support the effective governance of nanotechnologies. The project integrates vital engagement activities along the innovation value chain, at the levels of research policy, research and development, and the use of nanotechnological innovations throughout society.
NanoEnviCz integrates the infrastructure facilities of Czech research organizations for research in nanotechnology sciences. The program is focused on research in the field of nanomaterials and nanocomposites for environmental and related applications. Services include controllable syntheses of nanomaterials, their complex chemical, structural, morphological and surface characterization, tuning their functional properties, monitoring their potential toxicity and hazard.
The Nanoethics Group is a non-partisan and independent organization that studies the ethical and societal implications of nanotechnology.
The precursor to the Nanofactory Collaboration was informally initiated by Robert Freitas and Ralph Merkle in the Fall of 2000 during their time at Zyvex. Their continuing efforts, and those of others, have now grown into direct collaborations among 23 researchers or other participants (including 16 Ph.D's or Ph.D candidates) at 10 institutions in 4 countries (U.S., U.K., Russia, and Belgium), as of 2006.
