Institute of Nanotechnology, a global leader in nanotechnology
matters, today announced plans to launch the European
Nanotechnology Trade Association (ENTA), to support
industry’s uptake of nanotechnology.
to represent the interests of nanotechnology businesses
across Europe, ENTA will act to bridge gaps between
governments, science and industry policy makers and
business. It will also openly interface with the public
and watchdog organizations to ensure transparency
and that new nanotechnologies are developed in a safe
and responsible manner.
by companies such as Procter and Gamble, BP International,
Thomas Swan & Co. , Nexia Solutions, Imerys, SmartBead
Technologies and LOT-Oriel, ENTA’s membership is open
to businesses and organizations for whom nanotechnology
has or may have an impact. The Institute of Occupational
Medicine and other key advisors including Mewburn
Ellis LLP, Marks and Clerk, Darbys, Technesium TC,
DMEM, and CENAMPS have also joined ENTA.
of ENTA offers a platform for networking (including
opportunities to attend governmental and legislative
focused events), disseminating technology briefings
to media, accessing new markets, and for overall risk
reduction in the exploitation of nanotechnology.
of the ENTA provides
networking opportunities with other players in the
latest news, and hot topics
access to international initiatives and government
sales and marketing focussed events
opportunities to meet potential partners and financiers
access to specialist advice
invitations to events; and discounts at conferences
ENTA will work closely with the media and government
bodies to express industry's views and needs (on
legislation, standards, standard operating procedures),
and build strong relationships with NGOs and the
public so to ensure full community engagment.
Official launch will be on 1st June 2005, however
ENTA is currently active in surveying Europe’s leading
nanotechnology organisations to shape future strategy
leaders are encouraged now to become involved in shaping
the future of ENTA and nanotechnology, in both advisory
and member capacities.
