A large, international household goods company is seeking experts in the field of nanotechnology to be a part of advisory body. The company seeks expertise in different aspects of the nanotechnology world as they relate specifically to fields of interest.

The company’s business interests lie in the fields of consumer products and span a wide range of categories. These can be loosely grouped as follows:

  • Personal health care
  • Beauty care
  • Feminine protection
  • Baby care
  • Pet care
  • Household care

The company feels that the unusual properties of nano-scale materials have the potential to enhance products already produced and perhaps to be the basis of new consumer goods. A sample of areas where nanotechnology is thought to have potential is as follows. This is not an exhaustive list:

  • Modification of surface properties
  • Antimicrobial technology
  • Odor control
  • Strengthening, toughening and/or improved barrier properties of packaging materials
  • Delivery of active compounds
  • Formulation of stable nanoparticles dispersions for consumer products

The company is open to forming working collaborations with external individuals, companies or institutions to develop expertise in this area and to help us develop superior consumer products using a nanotechnology approach. However, we will use experts in the field to guide us on strategic questions and to help in solving specific problems that might arise.

Responses are invited from individuals interested in assisting in this way. Particularly encouraged are responses from those who have broad experience in nanotechnology particularly related to the applications mentioned above. The following abilities are desirable:

  • Ability to give technical assessment of project proposals
  • Familiarity with the use of nanotechnology in consumer goods applications
  • Familiarity with emerging trends in nanotechnology, technological, legislative and industrial
  • Expertise in questions of manufacturing and scale-up

Respondents should provide an outline of their background and expertise, their location and willingness to travel internationally and a brief statement of why their expertise and experience would be beneficial to the company.
