To achieve this we will foster world-class universities and promote an open global economy.



This invite from the NanoKTN is a major opportunity for UK companies to provide positive information about the nanotechnology industry to the Government. Please respond to Dr Barry Park at the NanoKTN via email to or complete them online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=wG2ZREq78gTGJLn3cUIkVw_3d_3d.

Below are eight generic questions to solicit information and the NanoKTN would appreciate if UK companies could respond to some or preferably all of the questions by Friday 9th October. In the report, companies will not be identified. The NanoKTN would also like to include UK Nanotechnology success stories and would welcome case studies for inclusion in the report.

Where does your company fit in the supply chain regarding nanotechnology?
What commercial/development products based on /nanotechnology do you have?
What resources are focussed on nanotechnology based products?
What alliances/partnerships do you have to exploit nanotechnology?
What sales are based on nanotechnology based products?
How long has your company been involved in developing and selling products based on nanotechnology?

What governmental funding have you had to support your nanotechnology business?
Where should company and government funding on nanotechnology be focused for next ten years?
