The ObservatoryNANO supports European policy makers through the provision of wide-ranging scientific and economic analysis of nanoscience and nanotechnology developments, which is further supported by assessment of ethical and societal aspects, impacts on environment, health and safety, as well as developments in regulation and standardisation.
Our analysis is available through three main forms of output;
- Concise "Factsheets" outlining the most exciting nanotechnology developments.
- Four page "Briefings" providing wide ranging scientific, economic, societal and risk analysis on topics of particular interest.
- "General Sector Reports" which provide more detailed scientific and technological analysis for each of the ten technology sectors.

Health, Medicine & NanobioMarket ReportsWhat is nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology is a very general term. Currently, there is no definition of the term "nanotechnology" that is generally accepted. This makes it quite challenging to predict "the world market" for products produced by nanotechnology or products with functional components in the nanometre range or [show report]
Chemistry & MaterialsMarket ReportsWhat is nanotechnology?
There is no consensus on a definition for nanotechnology and the scope of the science it encompasses. This makes it quite challenging to predict "the world market" for nanotechnology or products with functional components in the nanometre range or products working with a precision in the nanometre [show report]
Chemistry & MaterialsMarket ReportsMarket description
The properties of nanostructured magnetic materials and devices are extraordinarily different from those of conventional magnetic systems. Esoteric technical terms such as exchange coupling, giant magnetoresistance, single-domain behaviour, superparamagnetism, and tunnelling magnetoresistance all [show report]
Chemistry & MaterialsMarket ReportsProduct examples
Ultra-Web® Donaldson, Inc. a supplier of industrial dust collectors offers UltraWeb® filter media for a variety of applications. UltraWeb® consists of nanofibres produced by an electro spinning process. Electro spinning uses an electrical charge to draw very fine fibres of about 0.2 [show report]
Chemistry & MaterialsMarket ReportsDrivers and Barriers to Innovation
Drivers of the materials industry are clearly chemical companies. Most material properties may be changed and engineered dramatically through the controlled size-selective synthesis and assembly of nanoscale building blocks. This requires the creation of particles that can be prepared by processes [show report]
