Nevertheless, precisely the small size of its scientific establishment may represent an advantage given that the emerging Strategic National Plan on Science Technology and Innovation will include from its very beginning a res- ponsible nanotechnology policy guided by ELSI studies. Equally suggestive was the title of another report on converging technologies: According to this protocol, the center has the following goals: A part of that orientation involved closing the Department of Science and eliminating the position of Scientific Advisor of the World Bank.

Los microbios salen de la Caja de Guilpermo. In some cases, public-private partnerships in research have begun to play a greater role, although cautiously, such as in Mexico and Brazil.

Accessed 10 January In order to illustrate one of the multiple realms of application of nanotechnology, we should comment the application for a patent by the Venter Institute, in July applicationUS Office of Pa- tents and Trademarkclaiming ownership to genome that brings to life a synthe- tic organism able to grow and reproduce.

Department of Defense Puig et al, b The creation of the ANF in a narrow relationship with Lucent Technologies got to the press and generali- zed the debate on nanotechnologies and civilian society. Inthe Latin American Network of Nanotechnology and Society was formed, with similar interests across the region and headquartered in two Mexican institutions: The project began in and is expected to be completed in ten years TMC.

However, technological innovation in foladoro of itself is not the most important objective, but rather the incorporation of that innovation in the manufacture fpladori products with competitive international advantages.

This article shows the role of these Science and Technology policies in the promotion of specific objectives and the gap that was left due to the failure to incorporate an examination of the potential risks to health and environment, not to mention other labor-related effects. Despite there is very little research about the potential effects of na- notechnology to the environment and human health, products containing nano- components and production processes using nanotechnology, are rapidly becoming part of market transactions.

In Mexico, dozens of public research centers entered the new century by signing several research agreements with foreign in- stitutions; these institutions also opened graduate courses centered on nanotech- nology-related research.

Nanotechnologies in Latin America | Guillermo Foladori and Santiago J A Figueroa –

The Decree creating the FAN, with the statements of Minister Lavagna, attrac- ted the critical attention of different sectors involved. There has been little coverage in the international media about the development of nanotechnologies in Latin America; even though some countries in the region have allocated large amounts of resources to get on board the nanotechnological wave.

In Latin America, at the be- ginning of the s, several countries achieved the implementation of the know- ledge economy as an alternative path to development. Nanotechnology Networks power point. The World Bank, as the main institution promoting this paradigm, selected Chile as the pioneer to implement the Scientific Millennium Initiatives, which have supported some re- search projects related to nanotechnology.

Azojono Journal of Nanotechnology on line. Is natural, under this logic, that policy makers observe the link between science and technology and development, this is the case for nanotechnologies.

Guillermo Foladori –

Over the past thirty years, the world has seen the rapid development of technology in such fields as microelectronics, in- formation technology, biotechnology and telecommunications; but this technolo- gical advancement has not helped to bridge poverty and inequality that are still present in the world.

The general idea behind the endorsing of this technology is to guiller,o niches within the world market. From this perspective, nanotechnology is por- trayed as the necessary starting point to support a necessary change in the development process sought by these countries.


Therefore, the articles submitted are not peer-reviewed. These enclaves of excellence would have to survive in a country where guilkermo 0.

This is, as mentioned above, a multidisciplinary group that combines the expertise of scientists working in different laboratories at the Universidad de la Republic UR and the IIBCE. Despite all good intentions, there are several aspects to be taken into conside- ration in the case of Chile, such as the health risks and the environmental conse- quences of the potential use of nanotechnology.

This transhumanism is considered the most advanced stage of human culture. Mercenary intervention in pursuit of financing, at any cost. In spite of the relatively high number of research groups that develop nano- technology projects, the number of groups dedicated exclusively to this field is very small 2 of 34one of those is involved in carbon fullerenes and nanotubes, and the second in deposition of ultra-thin films, while the rest of the groups work on convergent technologies.

That trend includes the mobility of qualified personnel and most activities related to prototype design and, sometimes, the entire production pro- cess.
