Strong societal requirements and consumer acceptance are the driving force of nanotechnology development. The necessity for qualified experts and strong demand on education in the multi‐, trans‐ and interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology is a logical consequence of this driving force. There is the need for a comprehensive national skill‐needs‐identification study as a first step towards developing the appropriate workforce and to prevent any skill gap or shortage. This paper provides an… Expand
