Finland's New National Nanotechnology Programme Has Been the Initiator of Changes within the Industry
Finland invested in a national nanotechnology programme 1997-1999, and several initiatives have been launched since, culminating in the current National Nanotechnology Programme, FinNano. Nanoscience and nanotechnology research in Finland has largely been funded case by case, principally by the National Technology Agency Tekes and the Academy of Finland.
The focus for nanotechnology in Finland is on IT applications, biodiagnostics, catalyst technology and sensors.
