Gokhberg L., Fursov K., Karasev O.

Nanotechnology is a rapidly evolving area of knowledge related to the development of the methods of study and control of the matter at the molecular level to produce materials, devices, and systems with new technical, functional, and consumer properties that were impossible to achieve previously. The rapid expansion of nanotechnology R&D carries not only promised benefits, but also potential economic, social, environmental, legal, and ethical risks. Tha paper introduces national regulatory framework for nanotechnology development and provides an overview of available statistical indicators for assesing its potential economic impacts.
