Japan ponders nanotech policy, research directions

from the World-Watch dept.
An extensive article on the Small Times website ("Japan sees nanotech as key to rebuilding its economy", by Jayne Fried, 7 January 2002) provides a useful update on the debate over government policy to guide the direction of nanotechnology research and development in Japan. This debate has been going on for some time (see items from August 2001 and Foresight Update 44 in April 2001) over how to reorganize and reinvigorate Japanese research efforts.

Another useful resource is a report, titled A Future Society Built by Nanotechnology by Watanabe Makoto, that was prepared by the Japan Federation of Economic Organizations (Keidanren) and published by Japan Economic Foundation in the September/October 2001 issue of the Journal of Japanese Trade and Industry.
