Editorial: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Provence–Alpes–Côte d'Azur
An overview over activities in nanoscience and nanotechnology in France and specifically the Provence–Alpes–Côte d'Azur Region is given. Nanoscience activities are organised and funded in France by several institutions. A dedicated national programme, called C'Nano and which is coordinated by the French National Center for Scientific Research – CNRS, assures the animation. Project funding comes on the national level from the French Ministry for Higher Education and the French National Research Agency (ANR) or regionally from Universities and Regional and Local Councils. The activities and initiatives in nanoscience are accompanied by dedicated teaching and educational programmes.
