This paper presents an innovative initiative of a regional university stimulating the development of a knowledge hub around nanotechnology applications to businesses. The paper argues that the regional industry structure and competitiveness can be influenced by this type of university-industry partnership that initiate, share, facilitate and transfer new technologies and practices. At the same time the paper indicates the social and ethical impact of introducing radical new technologies.
