NanoFabNet is an international hub for sustainable nanofabrication whose structure, business model, detailed strategies and action plans are designed, agreed and carried by its partners. NanoFabNet’s upcoming virtual collaboration space, NanoFabNet Hub, will be a self-sustained platform that aids international stakeholders in accessing expert knowledge about ethical, safe, and sustainable nanofabrication.
The manufacturing and fabrication of high-value systems that incorporate functional nanomaterials or nanometre-scale elements is rapidly becoming one of the most important technological innovations across almost all existing industry sectors and represents a necessary prerequisite to the emergence of new high-value industries. In order to harness the full potential of these advanced nanofabrication technologies, however, the nanoscale processes and the building blocks that they give rise to must be fully integrated into the complex, large-scale systems and practices of existing industries.
The NanoFabNet Hub will be a one-stop-shop for all matters and concerns pertaining to sustainable nanofabrication and its successful incorporation into the complex, large-scale high-value industries by bringing together governmental and academic laboratories with large industries and SMEs, and thereby offering a coordination space for past, current and future collaborative nanofabrication projects (incl. both EU-funded projects and initiatives, as well as public-to-public partnerships (P2Ps) and public-private-partnerships (PPPs)).
