Notes
  • Nanotechnology is commonly considered to offer considerable promise extending from business opportunities throughout various industries to broader socio-economic benefits, especially in the context of pressing global challenges such as those related to energy, health care, clean water and climate change. Governments around the world have invested heavily in R&​D in this field and companies are also becoming increasingly engaged. Despite this promise, investments and company involvement in nanotechnology developments are still poorly monitored. The objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive overview of these developments through a systematic and critical analysis of available indicators and statistics, while acknowledging that there is a need for further work to both broaden the range of, and develop further, nanotechnology metrics. Panorama de la nanotechnologie : Indicateurs et statistiquesOn s’accorde généralement à reconnaître que la nanotechnologie est extrêmement prometteuse en raison non seulement de ses possibles débouchés commerciaux dans tout un éventail de branches mais aussi de ses retombées socio-économiques plus générales, face notamment à l’urgence des enjeux mondiaux concernant par exemple l’énergie, les soins de santé, l’eau potable et le changement climatique. Des Gouvernements du monde entier ont fortement investi dans la R-D dans ce domaine, dans lequel les entreprises s’engagent également de plus en plus. Malgré ces promesses, les investissements et les participations des entreprises dans les développements de la nanotechnologie sont encore mal mesurés. L’objet de ce rapport est de brosser un panorama détaillé de ces développements à travers une analyse systématique et critique des indicateurs et statistiques disponibles, étant entendu que les travaux doivent être poursuivis pour à la fois élargir et affiner le champ de l’appareil statistique sur la nanotechnologie.
