New Good Practice Guide – Nanomaterials for SMEs

Nanotechnology is a fast-growing science field that puzzles us on a daily basis with fascinating news and achievements from the nano world. But what is nano? And how can these latest technologies, developed by a group of highly specialized scientists and technicians, be of any interest to the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that focus in the automotive and construction sectors in the SUDOE space (Portugal, Spain and the South of France)?

This guide was prepared by the CarbonInspired network, and intends to answer these questions, and to bridge the gap that exists between basic research in nanotechnology and the market. It provides a reliable and useful source of information that can help the SMEs of the SUDOE space in establishing a successful roadmap and integrating nano-technologies in the development of market-oriented high added-value products.
