I would just like to be a bit more specific by saying that my research is carried out through a transatlantic approach. In fact, I am particularly interested in the European and U.S. developments in this sector even though I am well aware of the great contribution made by other countries as well.
By the way, the next meeting of the European Technology Platform on nanomedicine is approaching and it will be surely the right place to address specific issues such as the patentability and commercialization of future innovations in this field. I will try to catch some info and make some comments on that.
November is also approaching and we will probably see some calls within the FPVII for supporting actions on nanotechnology. Who knows, maybe one could address the commercialization of inventions in the field of nanomedicine...I will keep you posted of course!
