2 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki What is nanotechnology? Definition variant: Nanotechnology refers broadly to a field of applied science and technology whose unifying theme is the control of matter on the atomic and molecular scale, normally 1 to 100 nanometers, and the fabrication of devices with critical dimensions that lie within that size range. 1 nanometer (nm) is one billionth of a meter ( wikipedia, URLhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanotechnology, 2008)

6 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki (Nanoforum.org 2004: Outcome of the open consultation on the European strategy for nanotechnology) Don´t know <5 years 5-10 years never >10 years 44% 21% 8% 3% 24% More than 70% of experts expect a shortage of skilled staff in nanotechnology

7 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki (Singh, K. A. 2007: Nanotechnology skills and training survey) companies prefer highly qualified graduates

8 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki (Nanoforum.org 2005: European Nanotechnology Education catalogue) European universities reacted and start to offer more study courses regarding nanotechnological subjects

9 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki At a glance- Germany Education & training in Nanotechnology 175 University courses 48 Universities of applied science 21 further education offers > 660 enterprises (480 SME) in the area of nanotechnology c direct jobs and indirect jobs are estimated (VDI-Technologiezentrum 2008,

10 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki isw-project in Germany Identification of Trend qualifications in the area of nanotechnology Supported by

11 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki about the isw- research field: trend qualifications - early identification of skill needs in 1999 the isw developed a innovative scientific method to identify new skill needs, the so-called trend qualifications since 1999 more than 14 industrial sectors were examined, from 2003 also nanotechnology isw Institute takes part in the networks of early identification of: Skillsnet, Europe-wide coordinated by Cedefop and FreQueNz, Germany-wide coordinated by the federal ministry of education and research (BMBF)

12 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki they arise through changes in concrete activity contents in a innovative operational environment at so called trendsetters they already exist in several working fields and it is foreseeable, that they can lead to a broader skill need in future What are Trend qualifications? they contain the holistic structure of knowledge, abilities, motivation and behavior elements; subject, method and social competences they can be concentrated in so-called qualification profiles, which are no new professions, but provide inspiration for new education and training forms

13 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki Base of survey 151 questionnaire based interviews were held in 132 facilities of nanotechnology, like enterprises, networks, competence centers, R & D facilities the following five nano-clusters of nanotechnology were identified To identify new skill needs in Nanotechnology Nano- analytic Nano- analytic Nanochemistry/Material Nanobiotechnology NanoOptics Nanoelectronics

14 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki Trends in Nanotechnology Nano-Analytics- Surface-analytics with enormous magnification, Nanoscopes (AFM, STM, STX, SPM) - combination of different qualitative and quantitative techniques, - high-through-put-screening Nano-Chemistry/ Material - Production of nanoparticles, emulsions and coatings - Production of carbon nanotubes and fullerens - nano compounds and new functional polymers Nano-Biotechnology- effective Diagnosis methods, e.g. Biochips - Biosensores, e.g. in security sector or environmet monitoring - drug delivery and drug targeting systems on nanolevel Nano-Optics- Ultra precise optics, production of optical components - Laser technology - new efficient ligths, LED´s Nano-Electronics- increasing miniaturization of CMOS-Technique - Polymer electronics, RFID´s - increasing digital Memory size, GMR-Effect (Pictures are from different sources)

15 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki Competences frequently demanded from german facilities in % Interdisciplinearity Chemistry Physics Nanotechnology Biology Nanoanalytics Measuring and control techniques Basical knowledge Nanobiotechnology Biotechnology

17 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki new skill needs in the field of nanotechnology further education economic development scientific technological progress training courses transfer to initial education and training further education professions modular qualification systems modification or reorganization of professions study courses vocational training short-term medium-termlong-term timeline

18 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki Conclusions for skilled worker or intermediate level -skill needs in nanotechnology are very diverse and various -a single profession like a Nanotechnician is not meaningful, because of the many different work fields and various industrial sectors -transparent and transferable further education forms are recommendable, 18 qualification profiles were recommended by isw institute -more and more activity fields interact with nanotechnology, e. g. documentation, sample preparation, analytics and quality assurance -primarily in the very dynamic field of nanotechnology, which is characterized by fast development progresses and a strong international competition, flexible or modular learning forms are meaningful

19 isw Institute of structural policy and economic development gGmbH, Germany Skills for Europe´s Future, Thessaloniki isw- project in Brandenburg NANO TO BUSINESS - Supporting and strengthen the know-how- transfer from science to enterprises The Project "Nano to Business" is promoted by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Ministry of labour, social, health and family in the Land Brandenburg
