Nanotech-spending

Nearly a decade after the U.S. launched its National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the program’s $12 billion in funding has helped place the country at the head of the pack regarding the development of science and technology measured in billionths of meters. Yet, despite the U.S.’s unrivaled adeptness at patenting nanotech inventions, the country’s lackluster track record of bringing nano-scale technology products to market leaves the door open for China, Russia and other tech-savvy countries to challenge U.S. nanotech supremacy, according to a new report by Boston’s Lux Research.
