The government is investing R150 million to spur research and development of nanotechnology, according to science and technology minister Mosibudi Mangena.
Innovation centres for the revolutionary cross-disciplinary technology, which can improve the country's scientific research capacity, have been set up at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Mintek in Pretoria.
Nanotechnology applications - which explore new worlds of extremely small objects and even envisage microscopic machines the size of molecules - can be used to provide alternative sources of energy and improve healthcare methods.
