dc.description.abstract I n the context of govemment policy and international comparisons, the state of national nanoscience R&D is explored using bibliometric data as well as data sourced from the National Survey of Research and Experimental Development Inputs. This includes information about expenditure, ownership, collaboration and research fields. While the business sector performs the greatest proportion of nanotechnology R&D in South Africa, the higher education sector plays a critical role, and the science councils are common collaboration partners. In this context the development of catalysts and carbon nanotubes emerge as a key nanotechnology in South Africa. en
