U Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik has called on the private sector to increase its investments in nanotechnology research so as to build on Europe's world-leading position in the field. Speaking at a high level conference on the future of nanotechnology research in Europe, Mr Potocnik also emphasised the need for a safe and responsible approach to nano research.
'Nanosciences and nanotechnologies have the potential to drive growth and jobs in Europe, so it is our duty to make sure that they are developed in a positive, responsible way,' he said.
Opening the conference at the newly established International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal, Mr Potocnik reminded participants that if Europe is in a world-leading position in nanotechnologies, it is due in part to the European Commission being the largest single public funding agency of nanotechnology in the world.
