Nanotechnologies key to Polish economic success, experts say
Nanosciences and nanotechnologies have a key role to play in determining Poland's position in the global, competitive economy, according to the country's new strategy for research and development in the nano field.
'Nanosciences and nanotechnologies will be the most important factor in the development of the economy in the next 20 years,' the Interdisciplinary Committee for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology writes. It adds that realising the goals of the strategy will require 'a multidisciplinary approach, as well as the cooperation of the government, scientific institutions and industry'.
According to the 14 experts who make up the Committee, there are solid foundations for the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in Poland, notably in the areas of 'nanomaterials and composites' and 'nanoscale phenomena and processes'.
The Committee calls for ongoing support for these areas as well as for research into nanostructures; nanoscale devices; nanoanalytics and nanometrology; and manufacturing processes and devices for nanotechnology. These priorities are compatible with European priorities, the Committee states.
