Description

Designed for nano-aware individuals in both the public and private sectors, this volume - the first of its kind -- is designed to provide a concise readable resource on education and work development in the field.  Part one provides an historical perspective including a definition of nanotechnology and a broad evaluation of the global and national landscapes of the field.  Part two investigates the current status, evaluating the US model and comparing it to other models around the world. Part three considers plans of action that will prove to be sustainable.  It is a book designed to enhance awareness, review the facts, and fabricate a platform from which planning can be launched.
