Government and private sector should join hands and carry out focused research to make India a significant player in nanotechnology said former President A P J Abdul Kalam at the conference at the National Institute of Technology at Warangal. 

He further observes that only a few institutions are contributing towards advancement in nanotechnology in the country and an action plan needs to be prepared to make India a significant player in the field.

According to Kalam, the country can make rapid strides if the government and industry joined hands as nanotechnology will be the central focus for many technologies to converge. The next ten years will see nano technology playing the most dominant role in the global business environment.
