An Innovation Survey Framework in Nanotechnology: Iran's Nanotechnology as Case Study

Document Type : Research Article



Keeping in mind the importance of evaluating technological change, the present study tries to introduce a structure to survey nanotechnology innovation in Iran. for each of the five domains of “future strategy document of Iran’s Nanotechnology”, including promotion, infrastructure, the progressive of science and technology, technology transfer and distribution and the production and market, indicator was defined. Afterward, Indicators of each field using a matrix of attractiveness-feasibility with respect to the importance and feasibility ratings and and the four classes were introduced. In conclusion, with respect to the development of nanotechnology in Iran, appropriate strategies for using the indicators (such as considering class an indicators as main indicators and preferable and use from class C indicators a complementary) are introduced.
