Recent Developments in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
This talk is intended to give an overview of research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (N&N) in France and especially at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), which has made research in N&N one of its five priorities. In the first part we list the main scientific issues at stake, as they were identified in a recent scientific workshop held at CNRS. In the second part we present the French organization of research in N&N and give comparative estimates of the funding in France, Europe, USA and Japan. We end up by summarizing some elements of CNRS strategy in the field.
