The political-business interests are present in the creation of high technology industrial parks. Nanotechnology, Law and Business, 2 2 In Brazil, during the first stage the second was completely funded nationallythe financing was approximately million dollars over three years, with an 6 Information about nanotechnology is approximate.
Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. From the early s there was a change huillermo policy recognizing scientific research as the motor for development Masood, There are several universities and research centers working with nanosciences and nanotechnologies and about twenty research groups. Half Way to the Trillion-Dollar Market? The basis for this change was the re- cognition that the economic liberalization implemented during the s had not attained the anticipated results, but rather had increased the gap between rich and poor countries, and increased their foreign debt.
UN Millen- nium Project. Within this theory, technology just acts as a commodity and a tool to be purchased in the market to guarantee guillerm The idea that development equals economic growth has been contested by pro- ponents of a broader definition of development.
But we have to keep in our minds that competitiveness is just one aspect and we are not sure if it is the most important for development. This example illustrates how research in nanotechnology implies ethical considerations as profound as those of the creation of life. It came into existence in Claroscuros del crecimiento exportador en el contexto del globalismo neoliberal.
It can be also subordinated to different restrictions, rules, competitive standards and even consumer preferences. It can be argued that instead of adjusting fokadori research agenda according to the interests of a national plan for development, the program identified Chilean talents within outside of the country to support their particular research agenda. Large parts of the developing world are being left behind.
In Table 7, we can see that they have a profile considered to be of excellence in national re- search foladoti they are the product of the investment that has been made in the coun- try since the s in order to achieve this development: Human development gaps between rich and poor countries, al- ready large, are widening.
The Uruguayan scientists dedi- cated to nanotechnology would be wise to invest some of their resources vuillermo stu- dies of ethical, legal, and societal implications, as well as environmental impacts of nanotechnology.
Applied Ethics and Nanoethics.

This group is also ad- vancing medical applications including a vehicle that once introduced in the blood stream may be positioned in the body my means of an external magnet; which could be used for localized discharge of drugs, to contrast advanced magnetic re- sonance imaging, or as a bio-marker. After, the government launched the Industrial Technological and Trade Policy, which identifies nanotechnology as a strategic area.
However, this reflects a path where specific interests regulate the development of nanotechnology. Nanostructured materials, Molecular nanotechno- logy and interphases, Nanobiotechnology and the Network of semiconductor nanoinstruments and nanostructured materials.
The Process of Economic Development. Another important FUMEC action was the creation of the MEMS Productive Articulation Center in to facilitate the collaboration between industry, academy and decision makers in order to de- velop new products and businesses.
The most basic aspects to consider by any national nanotechnology plan are: In such course, the book by Endlich, Lisa It is difficult to comply with the rules controlling nanocomponents and to fully obey the patents regime; particularly because most of these products are not considered under current regulations.
In this book, different nanotechnolo- gies are analyzed in the social context from which they are emerging. These agreements lack funding or follow-up associated with the implementation of the projects.
In this regard, even though military institutions can conduct civil research, is this just a sub-product of the research directly related to the military, according the Mansfield amendment of ? Synopsis of nanotechnology in Uruguay Uruguayan nano-research is done chiefly by the scientists of G-Nanotec-Uy. The Role of Nanotechnologies in Development more.
Third, we identify the main actors involved in spreading these visions. There are several industrial branches that structure the high-tech sector in an economy, such as aerospace, pharmaceuticals, computers, scientific instru- ments and electrical machinery. With some differences, both authors argue that developing countries have a dual economy, one where a backward economy based primarily on agri- culture and handcrafts subsists along the side of a modern economy industrial and capitalist.
In this chapter we analyze the development of nanotechnology in Chile within the framework of the paradigm of the knowledge economy and we question the sustainability of the Centers of Excellence. Lucent and the Crash of Telecom is quoted. From 21 to 23 November, However, in or- der to finance these research projects, the US Army had to first know which scien- tists could meet its needs.
This contrasts with the European Union-Mexico scientific collaboration policy. In Ecuador, inthe National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy was launched and established as its main objective: There’s a problem loading this menu right now.

This transhumanism is considered the most advanced stage of human culture. Israel is giullermo top of the ranking with 4. From opportunity comes the necessity of developing aggressive policies and investing resources because, if this is not done, Brazil will remain outside of this new paradigm in which so many countries are investing so quickly.
