D7.6 - Report on the platform IP, Dissemination Strategy and the Monitoring of Regulation at 36 months
The periodic update of the project IP strategy, diffusion strategy and related activities was accomplished, together with monitoring activities on market awareness and regulatory framework. The potential market for nanoparticles measurement and detection systems, such as the one being developed by the SMART-NANO consortium, is continuously changing as the application of ENPs and the correlated regulation evolve. The interest level in nanotechnology and the awareness of the existing or impending legislation is at a good level among the contacts and customers, with little change compared to the previous survey performed last year. Among the changes there is an increased interest in nanotechnology coming from academic groups active in the environmental field. In addition, the sustained interest shown from the pharmaceutical sector indicates an additional sector to which the SMART-NANO analysis platform could be targeted.
