Have your say in shaping the next generation of nanomaterials for 3D printing and more!

FutureNanoNeeds is a project funded by the European Commission under FP7, aims at developing a novel framework to enable naming, classification, hazard and environmental impact assessment of the next generation nanomaterials prior to their widespread industrial use.

As part of the tasks performed in this project, a set of value chains centred on key nanomaterials has been defined, including one on 3D PRINTING. General descriptions of nanomaterials in terms of key properties and of the target applications and final products are reported. Also, advantages with respect to state-of-the art materials or competing nanomaterials were summarized and current Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of the value chain were also estimated. Market analysis was described in details for each value chains, estimating market size, trends, geographical distribution, and segmentation by technology/material and by application and top companies.

Now, we need your contribution to validate some of this findings. To do so, please fill in the online survey available here

We would greatly appreciate your response by March 17, 2017.

Cybersecurity is linked with threats, attack, crime and damage. This ‘noise’ makes it hard to discern the real issues, understand the key challenges and therefore to devise appropriate solutions. 

Cybersecurity is becoming relevant to all industry sectors not just the ‘natively digital’, but also traditional industries as they digitally transform their processes, systems and supply chains.  While this shift opens up opportunities, it also creates threats to operational safety, robustness and resilience.  CEN and CENELEC will engage industry to define their standardization needs for functional safety and digital protection of their processes, systems and data.
