  2. 2. Overview • Nano & Mexico ▫ Introduction ▫ Centers & Labs ▫ R&D Funding ▫ Research/Publications ▫ Commercial/Firms Activities ▫ Summary
  3. 3. Nanotechnology in Mexico: Intro • Second in nano-involvement in Latin America • No national nano policy, but mentioned in science and technology (S&T) initiatives ▫ Special Program of S&T: 2001-06  First S&T education and R&D investment policy ▫ Special Program of S&T and Innovation: 2008-12  Nano one of nine priority areas for S&T development • $US 60 million (est.) in public funds: 2005-10 ▫ CONACYT: National Council of Science & Technology  Key funding institution
