As of 2005, governments of more than 62 countries had dedicated funds for nanotechnology
related research. The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), a multi-agency organization

over $1.44 billion in funding for the 2008 fiscal year, which is an increase of 13% over the 2007 request.
Corporations are investing heavily as well. According to the 2006 Nanotech Report issued by Lux
Research, in 2005 corporations spent an estimated $4.5 billion on nanotechnology research, up 18% from
2004. Given the amount of government and corporate investment, there is no doubt that the next big
