This scientific policy seems to be elitist, but it was based on the idea that whatever di- rection innovation can take, at the end it will increase competitiveness to guaran- tee development. Nanotechnology and the Centers folaori Excellence in Chile Nanotechnologies are part of a technological branch that is growing worldwide and are associated with both the knowledge economy and the innovation para- digm.

Programa Nacional de Nanotecnologia na Capes. However, this neutral vision of technology, separated from the context in which is applied, giullermo neither what hap- pens in real life nor the position that most authors and institutions believe in.

In describing this new industry, proponents often cite the potential in particular for the developing countries to embrace nanotechnology as an excellent solution for countless problems, ranging from safe water; energy production; and health care.

The US Armed Forces have, at least, 3 branches financing scientific research including nanotechnology in public, private universities and research centers, in many countries: Acces- sed 9 January The analysis was done through the identifation of the main NT research centers in Global Poverty and Unemployment. Final Reflections Nanotechnology is a scientific area of rapid growth worldwide; many consider it as the basis for the next industrial revolution.

Nanotechnology, Governance, and Public Delibera- tion: In consequence several authors endorsed the broadening of the notion of development beyond economic growth. Low to High Price: It is necessary to note that both emphasize the importance of scientific in- formation for the public, but they do not recognize the right of social movements to voice their opinions on technologies, their implications and their potential risks.

This agreement would have been managed by a guilleemo appointed by the Ministry of Economy, presumably Dr. This is to say, policy that considers benefits and risks across multiple gulllermo mensions health, economic, cultural, labor, ethical, environmental, etc.

This characterization of the discussion, which at moments could seem rigid, helps to elaborate divergent concepts of the relation between science, technology and society that provide the foundation, legitimacy, or question the agendas of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. All these together are symptoms of the historical absence of a coherent public program for STI in Uruguay.

However, this limited support with two nanotechnology projects over 9 years of financing including the revision of one of those constitutes an important support, given the scarcity of nanotechnology development in Chile.

This center offers training courses and encourages scientific exchange between diverse research networks Almeida, Issues in Science and Technology, Fall. Likewise, under the auspices of CE- GETEC, a series of meetings of G-Nanotec-Uy and five local companies resulted in direct collaborations with at least three of the fifteen scientists.

There are other indicators used to show the de- gree in which a given country is incorporated into the knowledge economy, such as the KAM Knowledge Assessment Methodology of the World Bank. To describe this new industry, proponents usually cite the potential that nanotechnology possesses for developing countries to resolve their innumerable problems, from those relating to the purification of water, the generation of energy and the creation of medicines. Theories of development and nanotechnology in Latin America Mainstream development theory emerged as an independent branch of economics after the Second World War and with the purpose of explaining the role of the countries that have not reached the levels of industrialization as their counterparts in North America and Europe.

The following economic sectors were identified to be crucial for future in- vestment in science and technology GMI, fladori These rings are research networks formed by universities and research centers.

It is even more surprising that all of the Latin American initiatives have had the support, direct presence or aid of international specialists—most from the U.

In the same way, the A group shows a greater amount of doctoral, foladorl and degree students than the other groups. Background Nanotechnology has broad application, reaching all aspects of human life.

The general idea behind the endorsing of this technology is to win niches within the world market. The transition from industrial economies to knowledge econo- mies is happening already in developed fooladori such as the United States, the European Union and Japan.
