Israel is recognized the world over as a leading source of knowledge and innovation in advanced research and technology.

Israel's tradition of scientific excellence is widely appreciated, and Israel's technological achievements are at the forefront of communications, electronics, computer software, networking, defense, security and life sciences industries.

Israel's small size and limited financial resources are serious challenges, but Israel's academic, business and government leaders recognize nanotech as a key platform for ensuring Israel's continued R&D excellence for decades to come.

Nanotechnology is a natural enabler for Israel. In fact, our small size is also our advantage -- it means sharper focus, more efficient use of funds, fewer commercial obstacles, rapid prototyping and testing, and higher quality standards.

Israel's outstanding track record is just a hint of what nanotechnology will bring. Israel and nano are a strategic fit.
