The goal of the workshop is to address moving nanotechnology from the laboratory to industry-floor manufacturing. The workshop will address current developments and successes in transitioning research into commercial products and serve as a forum for industry, academia, and small business to interact and collaborate. Among the issues addressed:
- What are the technical barriers to scale-up of directed assembly and other approaches?
- What are the technical barriers to integrating nanoscale elements, structures, etc. with micro- and macro-structures into systems?
- What are the currently available risk assessment tools and best environmental, health and safety practices for nanotechnology? Are there regulatory concerns for researchers or manufacturers?
