The Nanoplat Project

The main idea behind this Support action is to develop a platform for deliberative processes on Nano-science and Nano-technology (NS&T) in the European consumer market. Nanotechnology products are now reaching the consumer markets within a large number of branches. As of August 2008, the nanotechnology product inventory has grown by nearly 279% (from 212 to 803 products) since it was released in March 2006. Personal care, clothing and cosmetics products top the inventory at 153, 126 and 115 products, respectively.
