About the
Nanotechnology Education Tree

The Nanotechnology Education Tree provides an introduction to nanotechnology and how it can be applied in different business and industry sectors. It also provides information on societal aspects, potential risks, the need for standards, some of the myths surrounding nanotechnology, a timeline of some of the key developments, and links to various EU-funded projects.

This resource has been adapted and updated from the Nanoforum Education Tree as part of the activities of the NANO-TV project.
