Nanotechnology is the science that focuses on the control of matter at the atomic scale. It has the potential to create many new materials and devices with wide-ranging applications, such as in medicine, electronics and energy production. There are many entry barriers which can affect nanotechnology penetration in developing and emerging nations. This chapter discusses such barriers for Turkey. Despite about 10 universities having nanotechnology programs, the number of nanotechnology firms in the country is still low. Using combinations of interviews, surveys and literature, these issues that continue to stall the commercialization of discoveries in Turkey are examined.
