National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC), National Institute of Metrology (NIMT) and Ministry of Science and Technology have announced that they would form the country's first research collaboration to build Thailand's capabilities in providing quality infrastructure in areas related to nano-scale measurement, calibration, and nanometrology.
How nanotech is helping businesses to stay ahead of the competition
The consumer goods sector is a highly lucrative and incredibly competitive one, and staying ahead of the competition requires continual innovation. Andy Garland from Nanoposts.com looks at how nanotechnology is being exploited by brand owners as a tool for creating exciting new products.
In our regular series on issues linked to medical nanotechnology, Richard Moore examines the notion of "governance", what it may mean to different stakeholders and how it may affect medical nanotechnology, especially on a European level.
Imagine a cable, almost 36 thousand kilometres long, extending from the surface of the earth and capable of transporting payloads and people into space. Carbon nanotubes, considered as the wonder material of the 21st century, are a potential candidate material in this revolutionary concept of the Space elevator.
The current economic slowdown, triggered by the subprime mortgage collapse in the US is likely to have far-reaching implications. Pythagoras Petratos describes the current crisis and outlines the effects it is likely to have on the development of nanotechnology.
In this issue of NANO we explore new technologies for energy generation, disease prevention and water purification that have the potential to change the developing world and save millions of lives.
The global market for new products manufactured using nanotechnology will produce unparalleled opportunities and huge benefits to consumers. The healthcare and textile industries are already experiencing these benefits. However, the realisation of these opportunities is intrinsically linked to purposeful and sustainable investment, manufacturing facilities, and the right infrastructure and expertise to develop products and markets.
EU Nano head on competing and winning in the global arena.
Christos Tokamanis is head of the unit 'Nano and Converging Sciences and Technologies' in the Research Directorate General of the European Commission. Mr Tokamanis speaks to Ottilia Saxl about the challenges faced by Europe in nanotechnology and progress that has already been made.
