Nanotechnology Business Creation Inititve

Initiative that seeks to promote the techniques of micro and attract actors in the world in order to promote the generation of companies and businesses and innovation hub in nanotechnology

Nanotechnology Products Database (NPD) was established in January 2016 in order to become a reliable, credible, and up-to-date source of information for the analysis and characterization of nanotechnology products (i.e., nanoproducts) introduced in global markets.
NPD, at a glance, is:
  • An online data and analysis repository giving users an inventory of consumer products information.
  • An open-access database contributing to promote nanotechnology applications in commercial products.
  • A gateway to latest statistics on nanoproducts available on markets all over the world.
The primary mission of the database is to gather, analyze, and publish information about the products, the performance of which are improved by cutting-edge nanotechnology, considering either manufacturers’ assertion or NPD’s conjecture. The verification is done on the basis of the definitions of nanotechnology and nanotechnology products, published in two international ISO standards under the numbers ISO/TS 80004-1:2015 and ISO/TS 18110:2015, respectively.
Data available for recorded products in NPD include:
  • Brands which are introduced in markets;
  • Product features which are improved by nanotechnology;
  • Nanomaterials used in products plus relevant specifications;
  • Certificates and approvals obtained by manufacturers or products.
Moreover, NPD is employed to constitute the following achievements:
  • Investors to monitor and receive a proper vision of the process of nanotechnology commercialization across industrial sectors.
  • Producers to be informed of the present situation of nanotechnology in the global market and circumstances in which they could exploit the merit of nanotechnology to attract customers and keep up with their competitors.
  • Researchers to obtain a deeper understanding of applications and characteristics which various nanomaterials create in products to formulate their future studies towards applied research.
  • Authorities, governments, and decision-makers to pursue effective policies and programs by being informed of the influence of nanotechnology penetration into industrial sectors on economy, unemployment, and welfare, to name but a few.
All visitors are welcome to add a product to our database. NPD experts will examine the submitted products according to the international standards, and the products will be displayed on NPD in case they are considered nanotechnology products. So, feel free to submit your product here

Target Group 

with many opportunities. This aspect is extremely important because nanotechnology, despite being a fundamental knowledge, remains a niche technology. The DNBC Initiative contributes to bridging this gap and gives to companies and investor an ideal opportunity for gaining “hands-on” experience into real products from direct R&D, as outlined by the iso 4001:2015 .and 

Companies operating in the nanotechnology sector • Large companies & SMEs need a tool to access relevant info on R&D and the most promising ideas in the field of nanotechnology to exploit potential markets. 

 2) Researchers • Need to organize a coordinated approach to nanotech research in MENA area and to more effectively transfer the applied research to industry. 

 3) Venture capitalists • Banks & venture capitalists assurances when offering risk capital to areas that are perceived to have a high technical risk, uncertain timeto-market or could have negative ethical, health or environmental consequences like nanotechnologies. 

 4) Industrial and Chemical Associations and National Authorities • Need to assess the effects on human health, exposure and environmental impacts of nanomaterials before industrialization/ commercialization in order to profile common standards in terms of safety & quality of products.

Nanodeals Generator: 

which will connect research with SMEs & the chemical industry (“knowledge to business” approach) to boost Nano R&D and “open innovation” among chemical nanotech companies. The “Nanodeals Generator” will operate throughout the project duration, and through this NANOFORCE expects to facilitate up to 100 innovative nanotech deals between enterprises and R&D centers of different countries. This intention is supported by a CE Nanotechnology Roadmap that provides tools to define and assess progress in nanotech & penetration into its mature phase of industrial development.
