During the last weeks, the NMP-REG partnership produced a report on requirements for delivering Nanotechnologies, advanced Materials and Production (NMP) to regional manufacturing.

Purpose of the document is to provide an overview of the types of policy support that are required to ensure that research and innovation in the field of NMP reaches the manufacturing system, to share knowledge on some of the policy support that is provided in NMP-REG partner regions as well as to understand some challenges identified in project partner regions, in terms of effective policy support in these fields.

The report has been structured around the categories of innovation policy support identified by the Regional Innovation Monitor Plus (RIM Plus) of the European Commission. NMP-REG partners decided to use this document as a basis for their interregional exchange. They have analyzed different categories in terms of their specific relevance to the question of innovation delivery of NMP to regional manufacturing and their status in the NMP partner regions.
