Press Release Summary = To accelerate the development nanotechnology and register
its presence globally, UK has team up with India and formed a joint entity called
NWG (Nanotechnology Working Group).
Press Release Body = UK and India has joined hands to form a joint NWG
(Nanotechnology Working Group) to thrust the development and expansion of advanced
technologies. The NWG will be formally launched in coming 2 months as a part of
British governmentРІР‚в„ўs move to prop up the nanotechnology sector of UK in the
Nanotechnology is a branch of science that has the capability to speed up the
development in many industries. Nanotechnology can break the existing silicon limits
and make computers much faster by creating smaller and more competent microchips.
Bob Driver, Director, High-tech sectors, UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), a govt.
body, which helps companies operating overseas, says the working group will take the
nanotechnology higher and bridge the India and UK technologically together.
Driver, in news published by Computing, says, РІР‚СљThe nanotechnology initiative between

doubled between fiscal 2003-04 and 2004-05.
According to RNCOS report РІР‚СљThe World Nanotechnology Market (2006)РІР‚Сњ, like other
developed nations, UK too has recognized nanotechnology as one of the important
fields to develop a knowledge-based economy. The UK govt. has identified Advanced
Materials, Energy, Communication, Healthcare, and Manufacturing as the potential
sectors where nanotechnology will significantly influence the British economy.
The research report also discusses global outlook of the nanotechnology market,
market analysis by products and applications, update on recent developments in the
market, and R&D funding agencies and nanotechnology research centers in UK.
