Nanotechnology Research - Initiatives and Networks
Showing results 1 - 10 of 16 of initiatives and networks in Switzerland:
The BIOTEX project aims at developing dedicated biochemical-sensing techniques compatible with integration into textile. The consortium includes two research institutes in the field of micro and nanotechnology.
An n independent, national platform pooling the scientific and regulatory knowledge and expertise available in Switzerland on the safe handling of synthetic nanomaterials - from production to use and disposal - and conveying it efficiently and in a generally understandable form to companies (start-ups, SMEs, and established firms).
eNanoMapper (ENM) proposes a computational infrastructure for toxicological data management of engineered nanomaterials based on open standards, ontologies and an interoperable design to enable a more effective, integrated approach to European research in nanotechnology.
The purpose of the nanotechnology committee of the IEC is to deal with the relevant nanotechnological aspects in developing generic standards for electrical and electronic products and systems. Typically, these concern electronics, optics, magnetics and electromagnetics, electroacoustics, multimedia, telecommunication, and energy production and, more specifically, terminology and symbols, measurement and performance, reliability, design and development, electromagnetic compatibility.
InfoNano is the central federal information platform for nanotechnology in Switzerland. The Federal Offices of Public Health, for the Environment and for Agriculture, the Commission for Technology and Innovation, Swissmedic and the State Secretariats for Economic Affairs as well as for Education and Research are involved in the website.
An organization dedicated to the promotion of Nanotribology
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.
Nano Cluster Bodensee is a nanotechnology interest group in the economic area around Lake Constance.
Nano-Tera is a Swiss federal program funding scientific projects. The Nano-Tera initiative aims to bring Switzerland to the forefront of a new technological revolution, using engineering and information technology to improve the health and security of humans and the environment in the 21st century.
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.
