U.K. nanotech report proposes national strategy

July 24, 2002 — A report titled “New Dimensions for Manufacturing: a U.K. Strategy for Nanotechnology” has been published by the U.K. Advisory Group on Nanotechnology Applications.

The 76-page report, unveiled alongside the government’s report on overall strategy for science, calls for increased U.K. investment in nanotechnology. Key recommendations include establishment of a national nanotechnology application strategy, building of national nanofabrication facilities, establishment of industry roadmaps, promotion of industry awareness, networking, training and education, and encouragement of international collaboration.

The advisory group was chaired by John Taylor, a former director of Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Bristol, England, and now the government’s director-general of research councils. It included experts from research and business.
