Third-party patent protection can be an obstacle to product development and introduction. Some development efforts completely ignore patent issues until a late-term crisis arises. Identified too late in the product development cycle, patent issue may [...]
Many nanotechnology companies have limited intellectual property budgets in the short term, but the potential for global markets for their products and services in the long term. As a result, a coherent and targeted international [...]

As a consequence of large public and private investments in new technologies at the nanoscale, over the last years an increase in the filing numbers of European and PCT patent applications related to nanotechnology has [...]
This presentation will provide a current update on the nanotechnology patent landscape comprising well over 6000 issued U.S. patents covering various aspects of nanotechnology. The characteristics and trends of academic-originated versus federal laboratory-originated versus private [...]
Environmental Defense, an environmental advocacy organization, and DuPont, a science company, have developed a comprehensive, practical, and flexible framework for evaluating and addressing the potential risks of nanoscale materials. The draft framework is available for [...]
A National Science Foundation-sponsored survey identified regulatory and safety issues as market entry barriers for nanotechnology. The limited availability of toxicological data on nanomaterials, especially from studies using standardized protocols (biological system to be studied) [...]
Engineered nano-scale materials are increasingly being used in consumer products. Health risk assessments are needed to evaluate potential hazards associated with release of these materials and ensure regulatory and public acceptance. This paper presents a [...]
Nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing have tremendous potential for benefiting the global poor—the approximately 2.7 billion people in the world that live on less that 2 dollars per day (purchasing power parity). For example, nanotechnologies may help [...]
The public speech of President Clinton on Jan, 2000 gave a big impact on the Japan Federation of Economic Organization because the industrial development remained sluggish in Japan. Following USA, Japanese government put a large [...]
AGI will show how a project planning process that includes a business case analysis for Nanofabrication buildings can help with many of the design, construction and operational decisions for the buildings. The typical building project [...]
The difficulty in establishing academia/industry research collaborations focused on nanotechnology stems mostly from a difference in perspectives. While most academic work focuses on science, industry’s emphasis is on applications. For example, a scientist may be [...]
The Center for Accelerated Applications at the Nanoscale (CAAN), established in 2004 by Governor Mike Round’s 2010 Initiative, is a group of distinguished South Dakota researchers who have joined together in focused efforts to conduct [...]
Nanotechnology is an emerging field that has great potential for use in commercial, defense and security applications. Nanomaterials and the manufacturing techniques used to create them, however, may pose adverse environmental, health and safety effects. [...]
The World Health Organization estimates that 10% of global medicines are fake. Moreover, organized crime has become involved in counterfeiting at an international level, and prospects of terrorism also lurk. Indeed, counterfeiting is a growing, [...]
Individuals, businesses, and governments evaluate nanotechnology on a spectrum from laissez faire to the precautionary principle, often without sufficient understanding of what nanotechnology is, how it works, how it is changing, or what its costs [...]
How will nanotechnology affect the way we design, make, and inhabit buildings? In the NanoSTUDIO, interdisciplinary groups of students from Ball State University’s Department of Architecture and the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Interprofessional Projects Program [...]
An essential goal of education in nanotechnology is an understanding of scale and metrology, of instrumentation and fundamental physics. Easy to use and affordable instrumentation is indispensable in reaching this goal. Nanosurf offers both STM [...]
Nanotechnology is having significant impact on the workforce and skill needs of companies. In order for firms to fully realize the potential of new technologies, firms must have a supply of workers with the skills [...]
Nanotechnology is a discipline that will require scientists to draw upon many disciplines in order to develop it to its full potential. It will also require significant public engagement to debate and decide on nanotechnology’s [...]
In the Fall of 2006, the University of Wisconsin-Stout implemented an undergraduate program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The program enables majors in the sciences or engineering to gain significant educational experience specific to nanotechnology. The [...]
