To catch up with the development of global science and technology, Vietnam should have proper investment plans, prepared for ideas and combining scientists and experts with programmes which have completely new contents, and establishing training and research centres. Apart from traditional laboratories, two National Universities have begun to do this.
Nanotechnology Masters Courses each vary in their emphasis and content, and the NanoMasters Course Website provides a means for prospective students to search for details of Nano Masters Courses of specific interest to them.
Don't know your nanorod from your nanoribbon? Want to find out what nanomaterials are in the products you buy? Could the safe handling of nanomaterials be improved? Nine new nanotechnology publications lead the way.
NanoSci-E+ is announcing the opening of a transnational call for collaborative proposals. A minimum of EUR 16M will be distributed for the funding of high-quality projects, possibly complemented by an additional EUR 8M (subject to contract with the European Commission).
A delegation from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, visited Hong Kong University of Science and Technology today to sign a Memorandum of Understanding establishing a long-term collaboration between the two research institutions.
Rapid identification of bird flu infection will be the key to controlling a pandemic should the virus learn how to transmit between humans. A new lab-on-a-chip could provide diagnosis in as little as 30 minutes.
At the largest Asian fair for nanotechnology, the nano tech 2008, IVAM Microtechnology Network promotes the innovations of its 270 member companies and institutes, ranging from nanoanalytics to tool manufacturing.
When the public considers competing arguments about a new technology's potential risks and benefits, people will tend to agree with the expert whose values are closest to their own, no matter what position the expert takes. The same will hold true for nanotechnology, a key study has found.
Research underway at the University of Leeds will provide a completely fresh insight into the workings of nano-scale systems, and enable advances in the development of nano-electronic devices for use in industry, medicine and biotechnology.
Researchers at MIT and Texas Instruments have unveiled a new chip design for portable electronics that can be up to 10 times more energy-efficient than present technology. The design could lead to cell phones, implantable medical devices and sensors that last far longer when running from a battery.
