Interview: Janez Potočnik

Question: What are you doing about nanotechnology?

Janez Potočnik: Nanotechnology is one of the most promising scientific fields. I would compare it to the impact of ICT or biotechnology. Why? Because if you have one breakthrough in nanotechnology you can use it across sectors. And thatís why everybody, including Europe, is working hard in the nanotechnology area. We see it as one of the most promising areas of research which could very much influence our quality of life, and influence global competitiveness.
