VILA SEOANE, Maximiliano Facundo. Los desafíos de la nanotecnología para el “desarrollo” en Argentina. Mundo nano [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.13, pp.78-94.  Epub 11-Jun-2021. ISSN 2448-5691.

This article describes the main features of a public policy for nanotechnology in Argentina and the type of development model that it contributes to. It explains the main factors that inspired the policy, such as the pioneering experience of the US, international financial organizations and the scientific community. In turn, it outlines the analytical model of government intervention, the National System of Innovation, considering its weaknesses. Beyond this, the article details the major milestones that shaped the policy and some tensions in its implementation. Among them: The dispute over its definition; the challenges in the interactions between research and development groups and firms; and key hurdles identified in its implementation. It concludes with suggestions to include civil society actors in policy design processes in nanotechnology, and science and technology in general, so they can enrich approaches to solve social and environmental problems of the country.
