Governments worldwide are now strongly supporting R&D in nanotechnology, with over 30 countries implementing concerted national initiatives and programs. Government spending on nanotechnology worldwide is now at record levels.

United States, South Korea and Japan, three of the biggest hitters in terms of governmental support of nanotechnology, have reached the five year mark in their respective programs. All three have considered the first five years to have been a success as they have implemented the necessary infrastructure, networks and resources for the next stage: commercialization and exploitation.

Now in its third edition, Government Policy and Initiatives in Nanotechnology Worldwide details the programs and initiatives of over 30 countries worldwide. It outlines the frameworks that have been put in place and the next steps on the path to commercialization.
