Europe sees some nano 'action'


Looking small, thinking big – keeping Europe at the forefront of nanotechnology (Welcomeurope)

    The European Commission has today announced the ways in which it intends to keep Europe at the forefront of the fast-moving field of nanotechnology in a safe and responsible way.

    Applications of nanotechnology – activities at the level of atoms and molecules – are bringing a range of benefits including more effective ways of delivering drugs to treat diseases, faster computer processors and more efficient solar cells. An action plan proposes measures to be taken at national and European level to strengthen research in this area and develop useful products and services. More here

How the heck is the EU at the forefront of nano? But what measure? The work across the pond pales in comparison in the US, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, heck even tiny Australia and Switzerland are having more impact.
