China sees soaring development in nanotechnology

Abstract:
The National Steering and Coordinating Committee for the Development of Nano-Science and Technology convened a conference to review the R&D advancement and its commercialization in the field on June 5 in Beijing. Present at the meeting included Chinese Minister of Science and Technology WAN Gang, Vice Minister of Science and Technology CHEN Jinpei, CAS Executive Vice President BAI Chunli and Vice President of the National Natural Science Foundation of China ZHU Daoben.

According to the meeting, China has poured about 1.5 billion yuan (about $197 million) into the research and development of nanoscience and nanotechnology over the past 15 years, achieving encouraging advances in this regard. For instance, the number of research papers published by Chinese scientists at the international journals in 2006 were on a par with those contributed by their US or Japanese colleagues. The number of patents they have filed for has increased from less than 1,000 in 2001 to more than 4,600 in March 2005.
