Bridging the Nanodivide through innovative nanoresearch
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

For Africa and the Caribbean to be in the nanorace or anyway way close the widening nanogap between them and the developed nations of North America, Western Europe and Asia-Japan; there should be concerted effort by policy makers, private sector and academia to engage in innovative research. Without innovative research in nanoscience and nanotechnology in these regions, the region will be dead producing dead nanoscientists that are not aware of latest nano developments. The developed world should engage in big funding of innovative research directly in these regions and further collaborate. Read the Whole Article

Bridging the Nanodivide; Nanoeducation Option
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

Nanoscience is considered as the greatest scientific revolution taking place now with great potential applications that will surpass that of biotechnology and information technology combined. In the developed countries of North America, Western Europe and Japan, a lot is now being invested and continue to be invested on creating the awareness for the potentials of nanotechnology and nanoscience from kindergarten to tertiary institutions including universities. While this aggressive approach is taking place in the developed world, nothing concrete is happening in the developing world especially of Africa and the Caribbean. This should be a great concern for the countries of Western Europe, North America and Japan. These developed countries should be aware that their development is tied to the development in the less privileged countries of the world especially Africa and the Caribbean. The stability in developed countries is also dependent upon the stability in developing countries. Read the Whole Article

Bridging the Nanodivide; the nanobasket view point
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

Nanoscience is a scientific study at nanoscale. Based on Market Research Dublin report, nano market will be about $3.7 trillion in 2015. As the potential of this scientific study is great even greater than the effect of biotechnology and information technology combined; every country or nations is looking for inclusion. Unfortunately the developing countries of Africa, Caribbean and Latin America may be left behind in the nano race in so called nano-divide if nothing serious is done by the global community especially the developed countries of North America, Western Europe and Japan: Between 2006 and 2008; out of 585 nanopatent released; only one came from the continent of Africa and 2 from Latin America.1 Most of the patents were issued from Europe, North America and Asia especially Japan.1 Read the Whole Article

Journal Nanotechnology Progress International (JONPI) maiden edition synopsis; Nanofrontrunners, implications
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

It is expected that nanomarket will increase to about $3.7 trillion in 2015 (Research and Markets, Dublin 2008). The sales for 2008 could be as high as $200 billion according to the same Research Markets Dublin 2008. As a result of this potential in nanoscience and nanotechnology; every academia, country or government institution and private sector wants to be part of the race. Like any race; results are important as a measure of success and learning process for those that are not winning or that want to be included. Read the Whole Article

Pacific Nanotechnology
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

Pacific Nanotechnology
The Pacific states include Cook Islands, Timor-Leste, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshal Islands, FS Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. These Islands countries have nothing to talk in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanoscience and nanotechnology in this region is being catalyzed by Focus Nanotechnology Africa (FONAI)-US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) with a proposed budget of $10 billion for next ten years.

Caribbean Nanotechnology
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

As in Africa, the Caribbean nanotechnology is also at a primary stage of development. There are no government sponsored initiatives. There are pockets of single investigators spread in Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, and Guadeloupe especially in the multi-campus university of West Indies. There is presence in neighboring Mexico and Costa Rica with government sponsorship. The fields of interest in the Caribbean include naomedicine, nanochemistry, nanoernergy/nanomaterial. The distribution is as follows: Read the Whole Article

African Nanoscience and nanotechnology
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

African nanoscience and nanotechnology are at a very primary stage of development. There is no serious government commitment in terms of funding but there are increasing interests. There are some governmentsponsored initiatives in South Africa and Nigeria which was started Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc.(FONAI). Nanotechnology in Africa is built strongly at this present stage on individual investigators around nanomaterials, nanochemistry, nanoenergy, nanomedicine, nanosensor, nanoagriculture, etc. Majority of the 53 countries in Africa has nanoscience and nanotechnology presence with the heaviest density in South Africa. One of the objectives of FONAI-USEACANI is to catalyze nanoscience and nanotechnology in Africa with its proposed budget of $10 billion for next ten years. The distribution of individual investigators and fields among countries are given as follows.

US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) Workshop
Ejembi Onah
President, Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc(FONAI)

Recently the US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) held its first workshop. The workshop which was held online from June 21-26, 2009 brought together top nanoscientists and nanotechnologists from within the 158 countries covered by the initiative to discuss novel developments in nanoeducation, nanomedicine, nanoenergy, nanofiltration, nanosensors, nanofinancing, nanotech strategies and policies crucial to these regions in an alliance of academia, private sector and policy makers. The initiative has a budget of $10 billion for 10 years.
