Chubais Proposes Tracking All Nanotech Production

Abstract:
Rusnano and the State Statistics Service are teaming up to develop a system that will track everything produced in Russia that uses nanotechnology, Anatoly Chubais, the state corporation's chief, said Thursday.

"Right now, no one in Russia even knows how much nanotechnology production there is," Chubais said at a meeting of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Interfax reported.

Rusnano aims to help Russian companies win 3 percent of the global nanotechnology market by 2015 as part of the government's drive to diversify the economy. Nanotechnology broadly refers to any innovations that work on a scale of nanometers, or one-billionth of a meter.

Last year, the country produced 4 billion rubles ($120 million) to 20 billion rubles worth of nanotechnology equipment and materials, Chubais said, citing unspecified experts. The statistics service could report its first findings later this year, he said.
