B12bn a year for nano research

Abstract:
The Ministry of Science and Technology plans to invest more than 12 billion baht a year in research and development of nano technology.

Its target is for nano products to eventually contribute at least 1% of the gross domestic product.

Sirirurg Songsivilai, director of the ministry's National Nanotechnology Centre (Nanotec), said the aim is to use the technology to add value to products in fields such as food, medicine, energy and textiles.

''The country is only on the first rung of nano development, but I believe we can develop faster than other countries because of the strong attention from many sectors,'' Mr Sirirurg said on the sidelines of the NanoThailand Symposium in Bangkok yesterday.

He said Nanotec and nano-products manufacturers had already produced nano-goods on a commercial scale, and a number of items were being tested.
