Examining Economic Impact of Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences in Europe

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Research has published a call for tenders to analyse options for a European nanotechnology research and development (R&D) strategy.

The study aims to establish a monitoring system that will allow examination of the economic impact of nanotechnologies and nanosciences, examine how nanoscale research, products and markets are evolving over time; and present detailed analyses of key domains for future investments (modalities, instruments, expected impacts) in nanotechnology R&D, showing the highest growth potential for European industry and society at large.

The study is meant to set up a tool and to collect data for monitoring the economic and innovation performance of a range of sectors of the economy in which nanotechnologies do, or could, play a significant role.
