According to experts, nanotechnology is a key element for Poland's economic success.
Nanosciences and nanotechnologies will play a key role in determining Poland's position in the global competitive economy, according to the country's new strategy for research and development in this field.
"Nanosciences and nanotechnology will be the most important factor in the development of the economy in the next 20 years," says the Interdisciplinary Committee for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. According to him, identifying the objectives of the strategy will require "a multidisciplinary approach, as well as the cooperation of the government with scientific institutions and industry."
According to the 14 experts who make up the Committee, there are solid foundations for the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in Poland, especially in the fields of ‘nanomaterials and compounds’ and ‘nanoscale processes and phenomena’.
The Committee has called for continued support in these areas, as well as research on nanostructures, nanoscale devices, nanoanalytics and nanometeorology, and devices and manufacturing processes for nanotechnology. According to the Committee, these priorities are compatible with the European ones.
