Methodology for estimating, in monetary terms, the benefits of nanotechnology - CB0435

“Nanotechnology” should be understood as the manufacture, manipulation and measurement of nanomaterials. There is no universally agreed definition of a “nanomaterial”. However, we would expect this research to use one of several key definitions developed for use in international fora or legislation and we will be able to advise the contractor further on this.
To develop a robust methodology for estimating, in monetary terms, the benefits of current and emerging applications of nanotechnology.
