Micro and nanotechnology insurance
The micro/nanotechnology industry is forcing a paradigm shift in the way in which risk is assessed, managed and insured. But the sector is poorly understood by the majority of insurance companies and brokers, making it difficult for companies to connect with the right advice.
Working in this exciting sector involves unusual risk in areas of product liability as well as environmental and occupational health & safety. These risks can be indeterminate and are constantly evolving - often leaving you uncomfortably exposed without proper nanotechnology insurance.
There are no off-the-shelf insurance solutions for micro and nanotechnology insurance, so accessing expert advice is a prerequisite. And early identification of insurable risks can positively impact on the commercial potential of your work. Does your broker know their CNTs from their quantum dots, or their TEM from their SEM?
