ATIP02. 043: Overview of Nanotechnology in Korea

ABSTRACT: This report outlines the ten-year nanotechnology program sponsored by the Republic of Korea’s National Government. The program began in 2001. By 2010, plans are to allocate more than US$1.24B toward nanotechnology, from government and industry. These funds will be spent on research and development, construction of facilities and development of human resources. An overview of the goals of the national program is provided and representative current activities at several universities and governmental laboratories are summarized.
