Marketing Intelligence

Market Intelligence

Starting with a client's product or manufacturing process, we provide tailored market intelligence comprising current and future unit and market valuations, opportunities in different markets and global regions, and assessment of the competitive environment; allowing our clients to make informed decisions on future business strategy. Supporting this analysis we have a comprehensive database of key players, knowledge of global markets and the underlying technologies, built up through our work in international projects and with organisations in different industrial sectors and global regions.

Technology Assessment

Technology Assessment

We review current products and manufacturing processes employed by our clients, and advise how nano and other advanced technologies will impact their business and can be harnessed to enhance product value and manufacturing efficiency. This is built on our strong understanding of the development trends of nano and other advanced technologies and manufacturing processes, in a broad spectrum of industrial sectors, established through our participation in multidisciplinary and international projects and working directly with companies in our corporate membership scheme.

Technology Scouting

Technology Scouting

We assist our clients in finding technology solutions to solve problems and to enhance product performance and applications. We perform an initial analysis of client requirements and use our networks and contacts to identify new technologies that meet these needs. This confidential process spans a range of services from personal introductions to canvassing our database for potential technology providers.

Regulation

Regulation

The current climate has seen many regulatory changes (e.g. REACH, TSCA, RoHS) regarding nanomaterials, which impact all high technology businesses. Keeping abreast of these, however, is time-consuming and often beyond the resources of an individual organisation. IoN supports clients through providing information and advice on regulatory developments applicable to our clients' products and processes, detailing key changes, likely timeframes for implementation and implications for different business sectors. We offer bespoke reports, risk analysis and awareness raising workshops, all built upon our knowledge and connections, established through direct regulatory experience, European projects and participation on standards and government committees.

Environment, Health and Safety

Environment, Health and Safety

Environment, health and safety issues are a major concern to producers of nanomaterials and nano-enabled devices, and underpin many of the proposed changes in legislation. IoN keeps its clients abreast of new research, its relevance and how it may affect future policy and regulations through reports, training workshops and access to an international network of EHS experts.

Government Policy

Government Policy

Changes in government policy can affect funding priorities, support measures, legislation and regulation, all of which have major impacts on business. We offer our clients early warning of changes in government policy, and the opportunity to influence policy through our activities. The Institute both monitors and contributes to policy development at a European and UK level through its publicly-funded projects, membership of government committees and advisory groups, response to strategy documents and channelling the views of our members.
