Description & Coverage
Description:

Modern technology has positioned us in the midst of a new revolution. Together, nanotechnology and microelectronics are the engines of modern commerce, and are directly or indirectly enabling numerous innovative global changes. Whenever there is advancement in their performances, a dawn emerges in the global economy bringing improvements in all areas of human endeavors.

Nanotechnology and Microelectronics: Global Diffusion, Economics and Policy provides comprehensive research and case studies on the issues surrounding technology transfer and diffusion, trends and developments, and economics and policies as they relate to these technologies. This book serves as a resource for academics, students, policy-makers and professionals interested in advancing their knowledge of nanotechnology and microelectronics.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Emerging diffusion paradigm on nanotechnology and microelectronics
  • Environment and climate issues on diffusion of these technologies
  • Global transfer, adoption and diffusion of nanotechnology and microelectronics
  • Infrastructures (education, research and industry) as they relate to these technologies
  • Legislative frameworks and legal issues on these technological diffusion
  • Nanotechnology and microelectronics: impacts, trends, benefits, relevance and policies
  • Roles and national technology policies as they pertain to adoption and diffusion
  • Sustainability of programs in developing and emerging nations
  • Technology clusters and incubation centers
  • Virtual education, collaboration and technology flow from developed nations
Reviews and Testimonials

This publication has been indexed in the Book Citation Index Humanities and Social Sciences Edition and the Book Citation Index Science Edition.

"The chapters in this book provide voices from the North and South of the world. They provide discussion of the significance of technological innovation in developing countries and the connection to economic development. There are significant trends emerging in the North; the South must position itself in such a way as to take advantage of such development and growth. Nanotechnology must be approached with a thorough knowledge of the ethics that must accompany expansion and adaption on a global basis. Technology transfer is an important aspect of this book and it is here that it must be stressed that building a true partnership between the North and South is necessary to have a successful transfer of technology and knowledge in order to have a sustained nanotechnology in developing countries."

– Valentine U. James

The world is one; there are challenges that we tackle more efficiently and effectively together. For this, we need to create a common and level playing field and share fundamental knowledge and best practices. This book will surely help.

– Renzo Tomellini
