Research and Markets: Global Funding of Nanotechnologies - 2011 Edition Predicts Government Funding of Nanotechnologies to 2015, Using the Latest Information

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on October 3rd, 2011

In the last 11 years, governments around the world have invested more than US$67 billion in funding nanotechnology research. While some funding programs are mature and concentrating on translational research, others are still at an early stage requiring large purchases of infrastructure, from instruments to buildings and services.

Cientifica has been tracking public funding of nanotechnologies for ten years, and its unrivalled connections with academics and funding agencies make this report, the most accurate available.

The report contains detailed breakdown and analyses of funding in the major economies of the Americas, Asia, EMEA and RoW including:

Method of Distribution
Areas of Distribution
Infrastructure Funding
Timescale for Funding
Size of Funding Investments

The report also be looks at:

Changes to future funding figures based on the current economic climate
The most noticeable changes in policy or focus for nanotech funding in the current environment
Changes in the amount of funding allocated to infrastructure/equipment based on plans going forward
Short lists of key/major infrastructure initiatives; eg new nanotech centres, new initiatives
Flagship programs that are in the works or at an early stage

For the 2011 report the author has also integrated data from the World Economic Forum's annual Global Competitiveness Report in order to gain insights into how well various countries are able to capitalise on their investment in research.

Key Findings

With US government funding of nanotechnology receding slightly in 2011, Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) estimates indicate that for the first time, China will spend more than the US to fund nanotechnology.

In the last 11 years, governments around the world have invested more than US$67.5 billion in nanotechnology funding. When corporate research and various other forms of private funding are taken into account, nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars will have been invested in nanotechnology by 2015.
