We have over 60 years cumulative experience
Here at the Institute of Nanotechnology, we have a cumulative staff experience of over 60 years analysing technology and market trends, providing risk analysis, and assessing the impacts of changes in government policy, regulation and legislation. Our clients include industry, academia and government, for whom we provide intelligence on nanotechnology and its applications in different industrial sectors and global regions.
We were one of the first organisations to report on and analyse the impacts of nanotechnology. Early on, the Institute supported the UK Government in the formulation of its policy in nanotechnology in a variety of ways - from undertaking benchmarking exercises to leading fact-finding Missions to major nanotechnology centres and companies across Europe and in the USA.
At the IoN, we have staff who specialise in various areas of nanotechnology:
