Overviewing the Regional Micro and Nanotechnology Enabled Industries in the United States
A method to gather, process, and place encompassing and reliable industry data in the hands of educators and students is developed. Special categorizations are applied based on the specialty and position on the supply chain of each company to predict skill needs of potential new hires and the composition of regional micro and nanotechnology clusters. This poster will present conclusive data covering over 2700 companies working directly with micro or nanotechnology in the United States and discuss how to use such for the benefit students and educators.
The mission of the GoodNanoGuide is to provide an Internet-based collaboration platform specially designed to enhance the ability of experts to exchange ideas on how best to handle nanomaterials in an occupational setting. It is meant to be an interactive forum that fills the need for up-to-date information about current good practices for managing nanomaterials in a work-related environment, highlighting new practices as they develop.
The goal of the GoodNanoGuide is to create a central repository for good practices for safely handling nanomaterials that can be used and contributed to by people from all over the world.
Included in the GoodNanoGuide, which is housed on nanoHUB, are:Training Resources on the basics of nanotechnology and good nanotechnology safety workplace practices, nanomaterial specific guidelines and protocols, and the nanomaterial occupational risk management matrix.
