The article reports that the organization MEDEA+ has set up a scientific committee to look into nanotechnology and where it relates to the electronics industry. With commercial introduction of such science into integrated circuits thought to be between five years to a decade away, it remains currently outside the remit of MEDEA+, which focuses on research and development which is four to five years away from commercial exploitation.
