Tanaiste puts nanotechnology under the microscope
Tánaiste Mary Coughlan has officially launched Nanoweek in the Science Gallery, TCD.
Organised by the Nanoscience Network, Nanoweek will run from 30 November to 4 December and will include a wide range of events designed to raise awareness of the contribution that nanoscience makes to the Irish economy and to highlight the central role it can play in driving the Smart Economy.
The area of nanoscience has grown consistently in Ireland over the past number of years and the country has developed a global reputation for leadership in nanoscience with its researchers ranked sixth globally for the quality of their research output. There is a potential to make nanoscience a key pillar of the Smart Economy strategy, using it as a magnet both to attract FDI as well as supporting indigenous companies who are developing IP in the area for global export.
