Abstract

A growing number of nanotechnology research, education and industry initiatives have been recently launched by several Arab Gulf States to quickly build scientific capacity and track the worldwide developments in nanotechnology. This comprehensive commitment is intended to serve national interests in energy, water and food supply, medicine, and local industry. This study assesses current status of nanotechnology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, State of Kuwait, State of Qatar, Sultanate of Oman, and United Arab Emirates.
