About the Book
The advancements in science and technology (S&T) in recent years have no longer remained confined to the boundaries of conventional technologies. Nanotechnology is relatively a new field which has made a revolutionary impact as is witnessed through the investment of nearly $67 billion over the last decade by the governments around the world. It is also believed that as the Nanotechnology governance will get institutionalised with increased globalisation and channelized funding mechanism, it would bring tremendous benefits to developing nations if exploited appropriately. Investment in Nanotechnology is a smart strategy for growing markets, improving competitiveness, and providing greater equity and opportunity. Almost every nation have caught the vision of upcoming nanotechnology industrial revolution and has started its own nanotechnology initiatives through appropriate policy framework, robust budgetary plan, network linkages and human capital development for successful national development. Moreover, the market opportunity for the skilled workers and products incorporating nanotechnology, i.e., nanomaterials, nano-itermediates, nano-enabled products will also grow in near future proving the potential of research in this field. This book comprises 20 papers from the researchers and professionals of 14 countries, which include those presented at the International Workshop on ‘Nanotechnology (IWoN) 2013: Transferring Nanotechnology Concept towards Business Perspectives’ organised by the Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) jointly with the Ministry of Research and Technology (RISTEK), Government of Indonesia and the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), and also in collaboration with Indonesian Society for Nanotechnology during 2-5 October 2013 in Serpong, Indonesia besides some other articles contributed by eminent experts on the subject. These present significant insight on the role of nanotechnology in providing wide range of benefits, especially for the developing world. The book is expected to be of great value for the researchers, professionals, experts, non-governmental and governmental organisations active in the field of advancement of nanotechnology based S&T and for providing its efficient technological applications.
