Jive Media Africa is excited to be producing NanoNews, with Prof Janice Limson at Rhodes University. The project, initiated by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) includes 12 monthly eNewsletters, 4 quarterly newsletters and a series of three “science – writing” training workshops in which scientists are being supported to write articles for the public.
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter at the nanoscale, i.e. so small that it is measured in nanometres (one billionth of a metre), to create new materials with new properties.
The NPEP NanoNews project aims to bring together scientists and the public to create awareness and engagement with nanotechnology. It profiles the latest nanotechnology research and developments; the various equipment and facilities at work in the country and highlights potential career opportunities in this field.
