Summary This book provides an impressive overview of emerging technologies, especially nanotechnologies and biotechnologies and their prospective applications. It identifies and describes existing and potential markets for emerging technology-based applications and projects scenarios for macroeconomic development based on these technologies. Integrated roadmaps for the development of a nano- and bioindustry are shown and policy measures and corporate strategies developed to advance these technologies. These measures are illustrated using roadmaps and policy case studies. The book combines a practical, comprehensive overview of the technical side of emerging technologies and their applications in various fields with an analysis of market developments and characteristics.
