For the first time ever, an exclusive, comprehensive platform of the entire Israeli Nanotech eco-system has been launched. It is an all inclusive portal, mapping the entire Nanotech ecosystem, including over 300 researchers, 80 companies and 40 governmental and nonprofit organizations.

The Portal has been created by d&a analysts for the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative ( ) with the support of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) at the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade & Labor. As part of INNI's initiative, this portal will help "make Nanotechnology the next wave of successful industry in Israel by creating an engine for global leadership."

The new platform is built upon d&a's research, analysis and unique mapping methodology which presents the entire industry in a clear, visual manner. The platform's capabilities allow you to search by company, researcher or any free term. The portal's navigation capabilities and birds eye view of the industry promotes the collaboration between Israeli and global Nanotechnology stakeholders, particularly for projects that lead to continuing success in academia and industry. The platform also serves INNI's initiative by enabling international companies to easily locate potential partnerships and opportunities as well as to gain insights into Israel's impressive Nanotech industry.

d&a's research team have become experts in the Nanotech industry and have found that, "the academic and research field in the Israeli Nanotechnology field is dynamic and growing impressively and like other high technology sectors has the potential for significant international collaboration in science, technology and business." says Michal Oren, d&a's lead analyst.

The 2005 survey conducted by d&a and INNI confirmed Israel's potential as a global Nanotech R&D hub, revealing strong continual growth in national research capacity. Since then, the numbers of researchers in the field have shot up significantly. Being home to six world-class research institutions, each with its own advanced programs in Nano-science and Nano-technologies 79 new researchers have emerged since 2005.

Israeli Nanotechnology developed greatly since 2005. In addition to receiving an immense sum of funding (the donation matching model has effectively raised $230 million), and being the number one leader of innovations, Israel was recognized by ISI (the Institute for Science Information) as one of the top 15 countries producing Nanotech related knowledge and techniques, and the number of companies have doubled to a total of 81 in 2007 (compared to 30 companies in 2005).
