Nanotechnology in Singapore 2005-2006
While it has a relatively short history of innovation, Singapore has recently been investing heavily in Science and Technology as it progresses towards changing its economic focus from being investment-driven to becoming innovation-driven. Nanotechnology has been identified by the Economic Review Committee (ERC) as one of the key areas for Singapore's pursuit of competitive advantages.
The main funding body for nanoscience and technology is the Agency for Science, Technology & Research (A*STAR). The A *STAR Nanotechnology Initiative started in September 2001. Their approach is to seed focused nanotechnology research as part of Singapore's continuing effort to build on accumulated capabilities and the promotion of innovations in areas that will contribute towards industry in Singapore.
