Technological roadmaps till 2014 in nanoscience and nanotechnologies in materials, health and medical systems, energy fields

Objective

The primary objective of NANOROADMAP (NNRM) is to produce roadmaps for the application of Nan technology in three industrial fields (materials, health and medical systems and energy) that will cover the next ten years. The project, in complete agreement with the priorities set for FP6, will proceed along a path that will be time and cost effective. In the first 8 months NNRM will collect all the documentation relevant for the preparation of a road map that has been published on Nan technology in the last few years to distils the general scenario to start with. From this scenario the Consortium will select within each of the three above said fields the most important (2-4) themes "golden" to focus on, together with 1-2 more themes, also of high interest, but of lesser importance "silver”. The "golden" themes will be investigated in great detail with extensive face-to-face communication through working groups, Delphi panels, conferences and (web-enabled) foray. For the "silver" themes, on the contrary, a fully web-integrated road mapping methodology and tool-set will be used. This methodology, though somehow less thorough, is quite more cost-effective and therefore by combining the two approaches NNRM will deliver a road map that cover not only the main themes, but also those of second level, at a reduced cost. In total 12 applications will be investigated. The assessment will focus on drivers of change, scientific and technical challenges and barriers, market demands and funding needs, R&D strategies, infrastructures relevant for research and application of Nan technologies, social and ethical issues. Dissemination, discussion and feedback of the results are a crucial part of the project. This will be done capillary by all the partners. With specific web sites, distribution of documents, articles and release in the press, direct contacts and, in particular, with the organisation of 2 International Symposia and 8 National Conference.
