RI's nanotech industry in need of alliances

Abstract:
Tiny gadgets with vast numbers of features? Ultra-thin laptops with large amounts of memory? What else can the people of today expect? The potential of nanotechnology -- a new branch of applied science -- is seemingly limitless. By modifying particles on an atomic or molecular scale, scientists have been able to make leaps and bounds in a number of fields, including health, biotechnology and renewable energy. The Jakarta Post's Erwida Maulia spoke last week with Eniya Listiani Dewi, a prominent researcher of the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT)'s Materials Technology Center, also a member of the Indonesian Nanotechnology Society (MNI) on how Indonesian scientists are doing their bit in the development of this exciting new technology.

Question: How far has nanotechnology come in Indonesia? Answer: Many Indonesian researchers have now begun working on nanotechnology. More and more research institutions have begun research activities in this field, including BPPT, the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), the National Atomic Energy Agency (Batan), as well as some colleges like the University of Indonesia (UI), the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), the Diponegoro University, the Padjajaran University and the Surakarta Sebelas Maret University.

The Indonesian Nanotechnology Society was established in 2005 by Dr. Nurul Taufiqu Rochman from LIPI. It consists of several divisions, with members hailing from several different institutions, including the LIPI, Batan, the UI and the ITB. We (MNI members) regularly report what we have been doing to the group.
