Productive Nanosystems are molecular-scale systems that make other useful materials and devices that are nanostructured. The Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems will provide a common framework for understanding the pathways for developing such systems, the challenges that must be overcome in their development and the applications that they can address. The Roadmap will also serve as a basis for formulating research and commercialization agendas for achieving these capabilities. Productive Nanosystems will drive research and applications in a host of areas, providing new atomically-precise nanoscale building blocks, devices and systems. The intended audiences for the Roadmap include governments, corporations, research institutions, investors, economic development organizations, public policy professionals, educators and the media.
"We are very pleased to have the support of The Waitt Family Foundation
and Battelle as a partner on this critical pioneering nanotechnology project,"
said Scott Mize, President of Foresight Nanotech Institute. "The Waitt Family
Foundation and its related institutes are very forwardthinking, and Battelle is
one of the best research organizations in the world. With their involvement,
we will be able to identify the large gap between the basic nanostructured
materials being manufactured today, and the potential of productive
nanosystems. This ro
