This report presents findings from a pilot survey of business activity in nanotechnology and discusses methodological and practical issues (e.g. the use of definitions) for on-going consideration in work on statistics and indicators for nanotechnology. It identifies how work in this area may support the assessment of other emerging technologies via an integrated framework.
This framework is intended to provide the basis for statistical compilation work within OECD member countries and those non-member countries wishing to adopt the standards.
