The OMNT (Micro and Nanotechnology Observatory) is diversifying its activities. The Observatory’s current science and technology intelligence lineup, which covers fifteen topics, will now be rounded out with technological and economic reports and market research. The Observatory’s insights are backed by a network of 300 experts with insider knowledge of emerging issues.
A first report, published in late October, provides an overview of the main players in the field of multifunctional nanoparticles for healthcare. The international study looked at 700 patents and 12,000 scholarly articles. It gives a description of each organization, including the type of nanoparticles and their functions (diagnostics, therapeutics, delivery, etc.) as well as the pathologies targeted. Work is currently underway on forthcoming studies on other topics.
