This report contains findings emphasising the significant (and largely unrealised) potential of applying advanced mathematics to modern industrial problems. Mechanisms of proven efficacy are described, for implementation by universities, institutes, companies and government agencies.
OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials launched a “sponsorship programme” at its 3rd meeting (November 2007). Countries will share the testing of specific nanomaterials (MNs) under this programme.
This volume reviews the strengths and weaknesses of Norway’s innovation system and recommends steps the government could take to foster innovation activity and increase the impact of innovation on the country’s future prosperity and social well-being.

OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials has launched a “sponsorship programme” in which countries will share the testing of specific nanomaterials (MNs) at its 3rd meeting (November 2008). Much valuable information on the safety of MNs can be derived by testing a representative set for human health and environmental safety. In launching this “sponsorship programme” the Working Party agreed a priority list of MNs for
