  • In May 2006, the nanotechnology consultancy firm Lux Research published a report entitled ‘‘Taking action on nanotech environmental, safety and health risks’’ (Lux Research, 2006). The report addressed the potential impact of real and perceived risks on nano-businesses from a commercial perspective, and concluded that ‘‘One of the biggest challenges facing firms commercializing nanotechnology innovations today is managing environmental, health and safety (EHS) risks)’’.

  • At this point in history, tremendous human progress becomes possible through converging technologies stimulated by advances in four core fields: Nanotechnology, Biotechnology Information technology, and new technologies based in Cognitive science (NBIC). Many individual authors had noticed the gathering convergence of technical disciplines, and sociobiologist E. O. Wilson wrote an especially influential 1998 book on the emerging harmony among the sciences.

  • Every member of the product team is important. To succeed, a company must design, build, test and market the product effectively. That said, there is one role that is absolutely crucial to producing a good product, yet it is often the most misunderstood and underutilized of all the roles. This is the role of the product manager. In this paper we discuss the role and responsibilities of the good product manager, and then we look at the characteristics of good product managers, where to find them, and how to develop them.1...

  • This book pioneers life-saving innovations and assists in the combat against world hunger and food shortages that threaten human essentials, such as water and energy supply. Floods, droughts, fires, storms, climate change, global warming and greenhouse gas emissions can be devastating, altering the environment and, ultimately, the production of foods.

  • Technology is a powerful force of change in our world. We live longer and arguably better lives than our great-great-grandparents because of advances in medical, communication, and transportation technology. As we enter this new century there is apparently no end in sight for the transformative potential of human innovation. However, there is now ample evidence that the real legacy of invention is defined in equal parts by its benefits to society as well as its costs. There is no technology that comes without some level of risk.

  • At the turn of the millennium, we must question the basic expectations of technology. As new technologies can have a great impact on industry and economy, much is expected of technology. Society expects economic results from technology. Ought not the fi eld of textile technology to change its direction to concentrate on meeting, through new inventions and discoveries, the most important and essential needs, such as widening our views of the world, creating new cultures, protecting our health, keeping us safe, and raising the quality of our daily lives and welfare?...

  • Typically the processes are adapted from wood processing which benefit from the larger mill size (Paper I). However, concerns associated with the local availability of non-wood raw material force pulp mills to remain small and thus lead to the need for processes to be as simple as possible in order to be competitive unless very valuable by-products can also be extracted. The benefits of utilising agro-fibres are their generally lower lignin content compared with woods (Grant 1958, Hurter 1988).

  • Gecko’s feet, lotus leaves, blue butterfly wings, spider’s silk, fireflies, mother-of-pearl…. All these wonders of nature, which traditionally filled the pages of natural history magazines have attracted the attention of materials scientists over the past decades. They have often been presented as models to design and engineer optimal structures. And this renewed interest in natural systems has undoubtedly brought about innovating strategies in chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology....

  • Nanotechnology has received tremendous interest over the last decade, not only from the scientific community but also from a business perspective and from the general public. Although nanotechnology is still at the largely unexplored frontier of science, it has the potential for extremely exciting technological innovations that will have an enormous impact on areas as diverse as information technology, medicine, energy supply and probably many others. The miniaturization of devices and structures will impact the speed of devices and information storage capacity.

  • The dissemination of micro-electronics during the 1980s led to innovation. On the leading edge of these technologies was the machine tool subsector. However, the Japanese were the first to apply advanced controls and gained shares in global markets propelled by their lead. Since then Europe has caught up and ME competes at eye level with Japan. 10 A detailed assessment of the technological position in this area and other fields of relevance for ME, such as nanotechnology, optics, new materials and composites, is performed in Chapter 0.
