Nanotechnology in Mexico: A path with no plan

Abstract:
Edgar Zayago Lau and Guillermo Foladori summarize for Nanowerk their recent article "Tracking Nanotechnology in Mexico" in the current issue of Nanotechnology Law & Business.

By various accounts nanotechnology is portrayed as the new industrial revolution. Developing countries see this technology as an important tool to become more competitive to conquer international markets and as a consequence improve their economic performance.

Within Latin America, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico emerge as the leading countries in the nanotechnology field. However, in none of these countries is the impact of the use of nanotechnology subjected to serious study. Brazil and Argentina have coordinated efforts to regulate the development of nanotechnology with the creation of national initiatives, yet again with little consideration of the social implications. In this regard, the Mexican case stands out due to the absence of a National Plan or Initiative for the promotion or direction of research related to the development of this technology.
