Authors: Nadine Hoser
This paper provides an approach for analyzing the institutional development of nanotechnology in Germany and the United States. This article presents several hypotheses for why both countries lead in the nanotechnology field despite different markets and employing different approaches. The proposed model examines nanotechnology in the context of higher education teaching and the labor market as well as professional associations and the market.
