Survey: Nano knowledge lags, but U.S. should lead

Sept. 15, 2004 – In an online survey conducted this month, more than 80 percent of Americans were unable to name a single leading nanotech company, yet nearly the same percentage of respondents said that they believed that funding for research into nanoscale science and technology should be a government priority. The results reflect a favorable bias toward technology in general: Nearly 90 percent of respondents said they believed that continued U.S. global leadership in technology is important to the nation’s economy.

Chicago-based public relations firm Golin/Harris International conducted the survey with Albany, N.Y.-based Sawchuk Brown Associates and the Semiconductor Industry Association.
