Quote of the day

"Nanotechnology has tremendous potential to improve the quality of life for our citizens, create high paying jobs, and increase U.S. global competitiveness. Unfortunately, the government has not made the economic development aspect of nanotechnology much of a priority. We're going to try to do that."

~Gordon Smith (R-OR)

If there is one overarching grand challenge that nanoscience presents to us, it is the possibility to do an immense amount of good for humanity. From an economic perspective, the emerging NanoEconomy promises to create more jobs, fuel more innovative products, perhaps heal and cure more patients extending life and health.

~James Canton, Ph.D. CEO, Institute for Global Futures

"Investing in innovation is the key to a vibrant US manufacturing base and the continued generation of new jobs. Nanotechnology has the potential to create entirely new industries and radically transform the basis of competition in other fields."

~Mike Honda (D-CA)
