Switzerland occupies a leading position internationally in the field of nanoresearch. But when it comes to transposing existing knowledge into practice and fully exploiting the application potential of synthetic nanomaterials, companies face numerous questions and hurdles – from the characterization of new materials and their safe handling to the continuous changes in national and international regulatory requirements.
By bundling the scientific and regulatory expertise available in Switzerland, contactpointnano.ch, an initiative supported by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), aims to bridge this gap.
SME’s, start-ups as well as established companies who are already working with novel nanomaterials or are planning to integrate nanotech into their production lines.
