Introduction of Nanotechnology in Austria 2005 - 2006
The Austrian Council has launched a number of initiatives to develop, strengthen, and promote emerging technology fields for the future and a nanotechnology programme has been included.
Due to the limited size of resources available, Austria claims it is not in a position to compete worldwide in all nanotechnology fields as far as RTD or industrial production is concerned. Therefore they have set thematic priorities in nanotechnology to stay at a high level.
Austria has launched dedicated nano initiatives at nation-wide and regional levels, and seeks to focus and cluster respective projects in nanotechnology. National funding programs at large also encompass nano-related research and development activities; however the two identified initiatives try. This report covers all current activity in government, companies and the research community.
