Several national and international conferences, schools, etc. have been organized. The Government has spent approximately Rs. 200 crore over the past five years to promote R&D in this area. A bigger Nano Science and Technology Mission is being launched which will provide further boost to this area in a comprehensive manner including nanotechnology development through increased public private partnerships and entrepreneurial ventures.
