SA's R&D spend begins to turn the corner

Abstract:
The department is also making progress with its nanotechnology ambitions, and South Africa's Minister of Science and Technology, Mosibudi Mangena announced that it has published the Nanotechnology Strategy. Nanotechnology, and its building block, nanoscience, promise to produce smaller, cheaper, lighter and faster devices with greater functionality that use fewer raw materials and consume less energy. “Nanotechnology will drive the business revolution into the 21st century. We are determined to ensure South Africa joins the international competitiveness race that Nanotech expertise promises to provide.”
