The article discusses several nanotechnology projects in the U.S. and Europe, particularly Great Britain's leading center Cenamps which aims to develop products with commercial potential for the chemical sector. Funding goes to research and development centers to nurture the commercial potential of nanotechnology and support the community and industries surrounding it. The purpose of the centers, apart from the sharing of knowledge between researchers, is to speed the development of ideas from the lab to the marketplace.
