Final Report - NANO-STRAND (Standardization related to Research and Development for Nanotechnologies)

Project ID: 33167
Funded under: FP6-NMP


Nanotechnologies are predicted to have giant market potential and need standards and metrology to support safe and sustainable development and trade. In nanotechnology, standardisation activities started at international and European level in 2005. By 2015 it is expected that nearly every area of industry will be affected by nanotechnologies.

The project aimed at road mapping European standardisation, metrology and pre-normative research work for nanotechnologies and at enabling Europe to play an active role internationally regarding standardisation and nanotechnologies. Their final report details the impact their research has on the industry.

The roadmaps developed in this project have been used so far to steer standardisation programmes in Europe and also as an input for defining priorities for research in the next European Framework Programme, the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Thus, the project enables very important integration of European objectives on competitiveness with social dimensions covering public health, safety, environmental and consumer protection as well as international cooperation.
