"In fact we have to reach the level of Scandinavian countries where they spend almost 3 per cent to 3.5 per cent of their GDP on R&D."
He said that in this respect nanotechnology offers a mind-boggling potential in delivering for the poor of India.
He said that science and technology can help India in facing five key challenges of the 21st century that include energy security, food security, availability and quality of water, affordable healthcare for all and terrorism and internal security.
"Science of the 21st century will have to find solutions for the problems created by the science of the 19th and 20th century," Chavan said.
