Abstract: This report considers how technology transfer in nanotechnology can be optimised, building on existing good practices and also learning from technology transfer of other technologies. It seeks to help researchers, technology managers, industry and policy-makers, by informing and guiding their technology transfer activities in nanotechnology. It is generally accepted, but not well received, that Europe is less successful in converting its research output into marketable products than the US, historically, and now, increasingly, Asia. To address this, Europe needs to create the right environment for more of its technological output to become commercialised. This means having the right conditions locally, nationally and EU-wide to support development and deployment. Challenges (or missions) are expected to receive about half of the anticipated EUR 100 billion funding for Horizon Europe (the upcoming EU Framework Programme 2021-2027), under its Global Challenges and Industrial Competitiveness pillar. These will draw on the most advanced technologies, both enabling and disruptive, with nanotechnology being among the most versatile of those, albeit that it is still a technology in development with relatively few large-scale applications. Advanced materials (many at the nanoscale) are expected to become increasingly important for society and for business. This report therefore focuses on nanotechnology and increasing the success of Europe in transferring nano from being science and technology to its enabling products and processes, from the laboratory to the market.
