Should we stay or should we go now? Nanotechnology under the microscope in the UK

Nanoco, a world leading quantum dots manufacturer, looks for governmental incentives to stay at home as it considers the location of its planned production plant. Singapore and Japan could win-out if a deal cannot be struck. Can the UK government put together a sweet tasting package for talks around the discussion table or will it all go sour?

There is no official UK government strategy for nanotechnology so it will be very interesting to see what becomes of Nanoco. Could this set a precedent for a mass exodus of nanotech innovation in the UK? No, it’s already begun with Plastic Logic.
