Nanotechnology research starts to shape the beginnings of an index

InterNano Industry News - October 31, 2015 - 3:45am
The debate around what constitutes commercial success in such a vast and varied sector like Nanotechnology has raged for many years. It is difficult for organisations to benchmark themselves properly on where they sit on different parts of the development of their enabling technologies. This information is essential for the future success of the sector and The World Nano Foundation has now had over 200 organisations take part in our first interviews and online survey. The data will form the basis of a Nano index and all participants’ individual data will remain anonymous, but the global results will be published in the global media and for the benefit of the nanotechnology community.
