German seeks to conquer markets with new nanotechnology initiative
The German Government has launched a new strategy aimed at fortifying the application potential of nanotechnology for Germany's most important industries.
The 'Nanotechnology Conquers Markets' initiative will aim to pool know-how on nanotechnology in order to leverage growth and employment in four of Germany's leading industries: automobile industry (NanoMobil), optics (NanoLux), electronics (NanoFab) and life sciences (Nano for Life).
Nanotechnology solutions are fast becoming the part and parcel of automobile construction, and they are vital for maintaining competitiveness. 'NanoMobil' therefore aims to give Germany the competitive edge by supporting research and development (R&D) projects for the automobile industry and its suppliers. Specific focus will be placed nanotechnologies applications that enhance safety, ecology/sustainability and comfort.
