About the Hub
The NanoFabNet Hub is the product of two-and-a-half years’ collaborative work efforts from several European and international partners. It is the virtual platform for the NanoFabNet network, serving as an important tool for nanotechnology professionals and entities.
The NanoFabNet Hub stands for:
- a well-implemented, guided approach to high levels of safety and sustainability,
- trusted technical reliability and quality,
- compliance with and drive of harmonisation, standardisation, and regulation requirements, amongst all of its members and along their nanofabrication value chains.
The Hub follows an open structure, whose elements have been developed, agreed and validated in a stakeholder-driven approach. A registered NanoFabNet secretariat at its centre provides an accountable, approachable executive that secures its economic sustainability.
The NanoFabNet Hub is a one-stop-shop for all matters and concerns pertaining to sustainable nanofabrication and its successful incorporation into the complex, large-scale, high-value industries by bringing together governmental and academic laboratories, with large industries and SMEs, and thereby offering a coordination space for past, current and future collaborative nanofabrication projects (incl. both EU-funded projects and initiatives, as well as public-to-public partnerships (P2Ps) and public-private-partnerships (PPPs)).
It provides a range of services including access to potential partners and clients, infrastructures, validation, trainings and consultations, while collaborative and cooperative activities between actors of the wider international nanofabrication community will be fostered within the open architecture of the Hub.
NanoFabNet is an international hub for sustainable nanofabrication whose structure, business model, detailed strategies and action plans are designed, agreed and carried by its partners. NanoFabNet’s virtual collaboration space, the NanoFabNet Hub, is a self-sustained platform that aids international stakeholders in accessing expert knowledge about ethical, safe, and sustainable nanofabrication.
