International Cooperation on sustainable Nanofabrication

The newly published NanoFabNet Implementation Roadmap for International Cooperation emphasises the NanoFabNet’s efforts to strengthen the existing linkages between stakeholders in sustainable nanofabrication for the sake of enhancing international cooperation. The Roadmap identifies the dimensions concerning sustainability in nanofabrication (“raising awareness of sustainability”, “compliance with regulation and legislation”, “implementation of Read more…

How to reach Sustainability in Nanofabrication

The NanoFabNet, and international hub for sustainable nanofabrication, has published its ‘NanoFabNet Strategy & Implementation Roadmap for Sustainability in Nanofabrication’. Building on the NanoFabNet ‘Report on the Concepts & Disciplines of Sustainability in Nanotechnology & Nanofabrication’ (published in October 2020), in which the NanoFabNet Concept of Sustainable Nanofabrication was introduced, Read more…

Validation, Harmonisation & Standardisation Action Plan for sustainable Nanofabrication

The NanoFabNet, an international hub for sustainable, industrial-scale nanofabrication, has launched an Action Plan for the Validation, Harmonisation & Standardisation of sustainable Nanofabrication. The Action Plan was developed as a follow-up to the detailed analysis of the challenges posed by any validation, harmonisation and standardisation efforts in sustainable nanofabrication, as Read more…

A new Taxonomy for Nanofabrication

An in-depth mapping report by the NanoFabNet Hub illustrates the urgent need for a new, harmonised taxonomy for nanofabrication: when analysing the structures and naming conventions of 66 cleanroom nanofabrication facilities located in 15 countries in Europe and the United States, advertising more than 3000 pieces of equipment to be Read more…

Challenges & Opportunities in the Validation, Harmonisation & Standardisation of industrial-scale Nanofabrication

The NanoFabNet report on ‘Challenges & Opportunities of Validating, Harmonising & Standardising industrial-scale Nanofabrication’ is a seminal review of both the ongoing effort to support emerging technologies, such as nanofabrication, through harmonisation efforts, and the challenges and opportunities of nanofabrication itself. Based on an in-depth analysis of scientific literature and Read more…
