Nanotechnology Flourishes in Japan

Despite a rigid regulatory environment, changes in Japan's venture business policy and culture have helped nurture emerging technologies like nanotechnology. Since 2000, researchers and professors from national labs have been allowed to take positions in private corporations. Furthermore, since 2001, government laboratories have become independent entities. Japan has also ramped up its technology transfer efforts by creating policies to foster closer ties between academia and industry. As a result, there have been an increasing number of spin-offs from universities.
