France provides 210 million euro for nanotechnologies (Cordis News)
- France will increase its funding for nanosciences and nanotechnologies from 30 million to 70 million euro over three years, the country's Research Minister, François d'Aubert, has announced.
Speaking at the launch of France's new National Research Agency, which will officially start operating in January, Mr d'Aubert explained that every effort possible would be made to maintain France's position as a world leader in nanotechnologies.
'A market of several hundred billion euro will open up to French enterprises by 2010, on condition that we know how to anticipate this technological revolution, prepare the discoveries upstream and transform the trials downstream, by making all the actors in this field work in perfect synergy,' said Mr d'Aubert.
