Established in 2005 the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) is the only global industry-focused trade association for nanotechnologies. With branches across Europe and the head office in Brussels, NIA collaborates with regulators and stakeholders on the national, European and international levels so as to secure a publicly and regulatory supportive environment for the continuing advancement and establishment of nanotechnologies.
NIA’s capacity to operate globally places it and its Members in a unique position to sustainably advance the commercial interests of the nanotechnology industries.
NIA’s membership consists of both established and up-and-coming companies from a wide variety of industrial sectors. Members of the NIA benefit from it acting on their behalf in globally influential fora, such as the OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials and ISO Technical Committee on Nanotechnologies TC 229, and by receiving science- and technology-based expertise through exclusive documents, alerts and articles about contemporary nano developments and events.
