Nanotechnology Insurance

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 nanotech insurance.

There are no off-the-shelf 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?

La Playa will take the time to understand your enterprise and the myriad risks it faces. As an active member of the Institute for Nanotechnology, we take an interest in the insurance challenges facing companies working in this space, helping them to build tailored insurance solutions that protect IP, staff, investors, income streams and liabilities.

We have created successful insurance programmes for nanotechnologists that span:
