Societal benefits

In addition to the scientific advancement Nano3Bio aims to create beneficial impact for society as a whole. Not least we understand our European funding as a commitment to return value to the European citizens.

The most expectable societal benefits through Nano3Bio are:

  • Creation of high-grade jobs through new production processes and new application areas of bio-engeneered materials
  • Contraction of dependencies on raw material imports,
  • Accumulation and application of knowledge in a promising science sector
  • Advantage in competition through novel high-quality materials
  • Indirect societal benefits due to more environmental-friendly production processes
