Nanotechnology holds many socioeconomic challenges

Abstract:
Significant investment and research are being applied to the science of nanotechnology and, last week, one more contribution was made - the launch of the La Villette nanotechnology exhibition at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, in Newtown, Johannesburg.

This international exhibition is a partnership between the Department of Science and Tech-nology (DST), the French government, and the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre.

Nanotechnology, has traditionally been defined as building things from the bottom up, and is the technology of an atom, which potentially holds the key to new materials, which could improve the quality of life of South Africans, as well as position the country to compete on a global level.

The exhibition comprises four focus areas that present the foundations, techniques, applications and issues around nanotechnology through the use of posters, videos and interactive displays.
