- Nanotechnology is the science of creating highly miniaturized machines working on systems of molecular size that emulate the behaviour of larger systems.
- National Innovation System (NIS)
- National Innovation System means a core concept for analyzing an economy’s capacity to produce, commercialize, import, and utilize knowledge and technology. Innovation, learning and technological development, indispensable for long-term economic development of a nation, are now seen as systemic activities involving many and diverse economic actors. Therefore the NIS concept rests on the premise that enhancing linkages among various actors, especially with respect to knowledge creation, diffusion and use, is a crucial for improving a country’s innovative performance (OECD, 1997).
