A quiet policy shift for UK nanotechnology

Abstract:
Richard Jones: The centrepiece of the UKís publically funded nanotechnology effort has been the Department of Trade and Industryís Micro and Nanotechnology manufacturing initiative (MNT). This had a high profile launch in July 2003 in a speech by the science minister, Lord Sainsbury, with an initial commitment of £90 million. When, last year, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry announced an increase of DTI nanotechnology funding to £200 million, the future of the MNT program seemed assured. But a close reading of recent announcements from the DTI make it clear that whatever extra funding they may be putting into nanotechnology, itís not going into the MNT program.
