Besides this, the report covers the global R&D funding for the nanotechnology
industry, including break-ups for corporate, public and venture capital funding along with their forecasts.
Project Manager: These people will lead and manage nanotechnology
industry projects, and will have an in-depth understanding of the procedures, equipment, and methodologies of nanotechnology
R & D collaboration to include the National Nanotechnology
Initiative (NNI) and its centers -- This emphasizes the importance of collaboration and cooperation among researchers from various disciplines and organizations, including universities, research institutes.
The first thing we have to do is know who is producing nanotechnology
related products," he said.
According to Mihail Roco, senior advisor on nanotechnology
to the National Science Foundation (NSF) and coordinator of the NNI, nanotechnology
will have four generations, or phases of development.
In the early phases, nanotechnology
will be limited to industries where it seems to have some relevance: computers, medicine, airplanes, automobiles.
Building on that, new interdisciplinary nanotechnology
research centers authorized under the new act will be required to study the impacts of their work.
excites both extravagant hopes and deep fears, sometimes in the same people.
Plans are afoot to bring out a Lancome nanotechnology
foundation (for the skin, not an institute) next year.
Interest in nanotechnology
is growing exponentially in the form of startup companies, university research centers, increased federal, state and local government spending, and corporate investments in the field.
Richard Smalley, a Nobel-prize-winning chemist there, has used nanotechnology
to create molecules, called nanotubes, that are stronger than any object on earth yet still extremely flexible.
