European Commission Leads the World in Nanotech Funding

The European Union’s (EU) 6th Research Framework Programme has provided close to $2 billion US to more than 500 nanotechnology-related projects, making the EU the world’s largest funding agency for nanotechnology. The EU’s nanotechnology funding accounts for one-third of all European public funding for nanotechnology, and covers many important areas related to nanotechnology, including basic and applied research, safety, environmental issues, and workforce needs. While the EU is leading the way in government-funding nanotechnology projects, Europe’s private investments in nanotechnology continue to lag behind the U.S. and Asia.
