Nanotechnology has a huge societal and economic impact. Thanks to a good organizational structure The Netherlands have reached an international lead position in the area of nanotechnology. The Dutch government has also been made aware of the importance and impact of nanotechnology on the Health sector. Companies that make use of micro- and nanotechnology (nano inside) in the Health domain, are most typically in the scale-up phase of development and have applications both in the domestic and global domain.
Examples of solutions in Nano4Health will follow soon.
Nanotechnology is already being used in the Health sector. Consider for example personalised medicine, pre-screening of patients in a home situation, the smartphone as a personal medical assistant, organ-on-a-chip research technology, neural prostheses, societal reintegration of chronic patients (for example with the use of a wearable artificial kidney or insulin equipment for diabetic patients), monitoring of food.
Nanotech enabled solutions will ensure that people can live longer with a higher quality of life, taking caring of themselves and living in their own home. Personalized care can be delivered by medical measuring and monitoring instruments. Also, nanotechnology will enable the individual specific medication and solutions to target drug delivery much more efficient, for example by use of localized chemotherapy.
Nano4Society applies nanotechnology within the ecosystem to develop solutions for major social transitions and creating social impact and economic value.
