News Policy-makers, scientists and industrialists will come together in Braga, Portugal today to discuss the future of nanotechnology research in Europe.

This comes at a positive time for European nanotechnology, with the public-private research partnerships for nanoelectronics and embedded systems close to becoming a reality, the European Commission identified as being the single largest investor in nanotechnology research, and a recently-completed public consultation on the principles for responsible nanotechnology research. But it is important to maintain momentum if Europe is not to miss the opportunities to be offered by this exciting area of science and technology. Mrs Reding (Commissioner for information society and media) and Mr Potocnik (Commissioner for science and research)will attend the conference, which will over the three days welcome some of the top names in nanotechnology research from across Europe. A wide range of issues relating to nanotechnologies will be discussed, including the industry perspective, various applications (e.g. electronics, medicine, manufacturing), latest scientific advances. It is hoped that this week's Competitiveness Council, with research ministers from all Member States, will give the approval to 4 Joint Technology Initiatives, public-private partnerships to boost industrial research. Of these four, two – nanoelectronics (ENIAC) and embedded systems (ARTEMIS) will be very important for the development of the nanotechnology industry in Europe. The EU is also looking to international partnerships in nanotechnology. For example, a joint EU-India nanotechnology research fund was announced earlier this month, with €10 million to allow the best institutions in India and the EU to work together in this field.
