Volume 1, Issue 1

Lerwen Liu, nABACUS

The unveiling of the National Nanotechnology Initiative in 2000 ignited a global race to develop nanotechnology. In the coming years, governments around the world will pour billions of dollars into the field. Perhaps the most promising region for nanotechnology R&D and commercialization is the Asia-Pacific.  In this article, Dr. Lerwen Liu offers a detailed description of nanotechnology expenditures in the Asia-Pacific region. She discusses public commitments to R&D by Asian governments, with a focus on Japan, China, South Korea, and Taiwan. She also describes steps taken by Asian governments to facilitate commercialization of nanotechnology. The article then provides a summary of private investment in Asia as well as collaborate R&D and investment efforts. Finally, in the appendix, Dr. Liu provides detailed descriptions of nanotechnology funding in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zeland, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
