FinNano program sends Finnish nanotechnology sector soaring
Triple-digit growth in just two years demonstrates trends providing fresh opportunities to numerous industries.
The Finnish nanotechnology industry is booming unlike ever before. The number of Finnish companies involved in the nanotechnology sector has grown 111% in just a two-year period. Of these, 22% have a commercial product based on nanotechnology. Furthermore, this explosive growth is a signifier of trends demonstrating that nanotechnology offers new opportunities to both traditional and new industries in Finland. A large part of the overall rise in activity and awareness can be ascribed to Finland's national nanotechnology programme, FinNano.
