Mapping the scientific Landscapes of Nanofabrication & Sustainability

A new NanoFabNet report delineates the boundaries of the scientific fields of ‘nanofabrication’ and ‘sustainability’ in search of overlaps in both research and innovation (R&I) topics and individual experts that specialise in their pursuit. The NanoFabNet aims to establish an international hub for sustainable nanofabrication, whose structure, business model, detailed Read more…

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…
