Nanotechnology Information, Research, and Related Sites

Last Updated: Thursday, 11-Aug-2016 06:28:13 PDT

Of all the sites you will undoubtedly visit over the near and long term, if you have not done so already, check out Foresight, CRN, and e-drexler. This group is on the "leading edge" in terms of overall understanding of nanotechnology and its implications. AND they are actively participating in the emergence of this world changing, evolutionary, and history-impacting technological amalgam.


Nanotech Briefs
Engineering Breakthroughs in Nanotechnology and MEMS

"The Network is a pan-Nordic forum that offers in depth knowledge of the emerging micro- mems- and nanotechnology industry. Focus is on serving our audience with news and developments about research, applications, actors and networks as well as showcasing business opportunities."
"... provides technical information about advanced technology facilities. It includes relevant information about workshops, projects and other web links covering the design and construction of such projects."

NanoBiotech News
"... weekly publication of record for and about the nanobiotechnology industry."

"... both a website and an exhibition at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. The exhibition introduces basic nanoscale and state-of-the-art nanotechnology science to an 8 to 14-year-old audience. Content focuses on the smallness of a nanometer, scientists as people, applications, and links between nanotechnology and nature. NanozoneŠ educates visitors about the top scientists in the field by making their work accessible in ways kids can understand."

Center for Responsible Nanotechnology CRN
The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN)
is a non-profit think tank concerned with the major societal and environmental implications of advanced nanotechnology. CRN promotes public awareness and education, and the crafting and implementation of effective policy to maximize benefits and reduce dangers.

Responsible Nanotechnology News and notes about the ongoing work of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN).

Foresight Nanotech Institute
The Foresight Nanotech Institute "Today, with the basic framework of public understanding in place, we are refocusing our efforts on guiding nanotechnology research, public policy and education to address the critical challenges facing humanity. Foresight's new mission is to ensure the beneficial implementation of nanotechnology." "This site focuses on the science behind emerging technologies of broad importance, summarizing research results and offering technical perspectives on research directions. It includes tutorial material, new results, annotated bibliographies and links to external web resources."

Wise-Nano A collaborative website to study the facts and implications of advanced nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is developing rapidly, and its implications are unknown. This is a site for researchers worldwide to work together, helping to build an understanding of the technologies, their effects, and what to do about them.

The Nano Investor
"The Nano Investor is a newsletter that offers analysis of publicly traded nanotechnology companies in a variety of industries." Written by Michael Sinkula, Senior Research Associate

Nanoforum "European Union sponsored Thematic Network ... a comprehensive source of information on all areas of nanotechnology to the business, the scientific and social communities."
