Recommendations for European nanotechnology transfer from lab to fab

The industrial and commercial application of scientific research is a subject of intense debate in Europe. The motivation is clear: industrial competitiveness depends to a large extend on access to high technology. Scientific research in publicly funded laboratories is a potential source of new technologies. The problem of efficient technology transfer is a particularly important issue for nano science and technology because of its very rapid development in the past decade.

This report is the result of the two day workshop "Nano2Business" held at Warsaw University of Technology on February 7-8, 2007. The main focus of the discussions was on the best organisation for technology transfer incubators, technology transfer networks, and on identifying the main barriers to technology transfer. The issue of specific aspects of nanotechnology transfer was discussed.
