India preps nanotechnology policy

Abstract:
India has brought together a core group of about a dozen researchers from academia, industry and research spheres to develop a national nanotechnology policy.

Impetus for developing a plan stems from fears here that India has fallen behind China, Japan, the U.S. and the U.K. All have launched nanotechnology programs over the past several years and are investing heavily in R&D.

The team, dubbed the Vision Group, will be headed by C.N.R. Rao, national research professor and chairman of India's Science Advisory Council. Rao is also a leading nanotechnology researcher.

According to M.N. Vidyashankar, an official with the state government of Karnataka, the Vision Group includes India's best nanotechnology researchers. He gave no timeframe for completing the policy.
