Revamped CORDIS service on nanotechnology reflects huge importance of the very small (CORDIS News Service)
- CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, has launched a newly revamped information service on 'nanotechnology', bringing together news and information from diverse sources on developments in technologies based on nano-scale engineering.
Nanotechnology applications include health care, information and communication technologies, materials sciences, manufacturing, instrumentation, energy, security and space. Reflecting this growing importance, the European Commission held a public consultation on the future of nanotechnology in Europe, following its communication 'Towards a European strategy for nanotechnology' in May 2004. An action plan is in preparation, and initiatives in this area have been coordinated via the Irish and Dutch Presidencies, as well as the NanoForum, an EU sponsored thematic network for the business, scientific and social communities.
