Nanomedicine questionnaire

Trying to get as much information as I can for my PhD thesis, I have drafted a questionnaire that will be sent to many stakeholders. All answers will be cited by quoting the relevant individual. 

I thank in advance all those who will be willing to fill it in and send it to my email account at lucaescoffier @

Should you have any queries or suggestion, please feel free to contact me.

Please, send me an e-mail to have a copy of the questionnaire.

Transatlantic approach

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!
