What does qualify some one to become "Nano Certified " ? .. 
In a world full of booming culture and out raged moves to unleash the power in nanotechnology , The question is how to standardize a "Nanotechnology hype guru's knowledge/Education " ? 
Certification helps setting standards, specifications , measure performance then take the corrective action. The Quality Management tools like ISO, 6 Sigma help somehow to manage.
The DMAIC  , Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve , Control methodology in 6 Sigma context may be used to standardize, level , rank and help control the 5 W (Who is Doing What Where, When and Why)
the the Know -how.! 
If the Hype of nanotechnology continues without such commitment to assess more than to do research and try to apply , bad outcomes may impose and cause unexpected disasters  due to lack of specs.
If One is qualified , certified becomes the "Nano guy" . I guess he or she will be qualified enough to give trust to the community and will be illegible enough to bear the responsibility for any nano product or service effectiveness and safety , the right of being "trusted " and customers become "Better Informed" .

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
