The Nanotechnology World Association (NWA) is the trade association representing the international nanotechnology community. We are the largest global network entirely dedicated to nanotechnology, with a massive following of over 130k+ professionals and organizations who are leading the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of nanotechnology worldwide.


Our mission is to promote early stage collaboration, by fostering knowledge sharing and cooperation, from fundamental research to applied technology -- and provide a competitive edge to later stage commercialization.

We globally promote nanotechnology solutions adoption across industries – such as medical, energy, electronics, transportation and materials – by providing information on the latest breakthroughs and trends via an effective hub which connects entrepreneurs with researchers, start-ups with investors, providers with potential customers, employers with job seekers, and key players with one another in an independent and mainly industry-oriented association, inclusive of academia, research labs and universities, private sector business, investment institutions, business-supporting partners as well as government agencies and other associations.

Our membership is free for individuals, while our Corporate membership is designed to provide great ROI by leveraging our unparalleled reach to promote networking while massively increasing visibility, in addition to providing many support tools, resources and services.
