The present report is a work document prepared by Willems & van den
Wildenberg (W&W) in the framework of the NanoRoadMap (NRM) project, co-
funded by the 6th Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Commission
(EC).
It is based on the collection and synthesis of existing public sources and was
published on November 2004, as key input for the celebration of the First NRM
International Conference.
The major aim of this document is to set the basis for discussion and selection
of four out of twelve topics identified in the nanomaterials field, which will be
roadmapped in the following months – in accordance with the planning of the
NRM project.
Hence, the next steps of the NRM project include the actual execution of the
roadmaps on the topics chosen (planned for the summer of 2005), as well as
their broad dissemination to the industrial and scientific European communities
(until the end of 2005).
