Abstract

Nanotechnology, which is a cross-border technology transforming the world's economy, plays a crucial role in recent science and technology developments. Japan and Taiwan which have paid a lot of attention on material research and development, together with the emerging mainland China, have been the three key players in nanotechnology and material developments in east Asia. This study is to compare Delphi studies on material and nanotechnology fields for the three countries which share the similarities in the aspects of language, culture and geography. In additions, the linkage between Delphi study and Sci-Tech policy will also be discussed in this study in order to approach the social contexts of national Sci-Tech developments in the three countries.
