Dear Professor ( Editor of Nanotech ),


Thank you for your invitation to talk a little about the status of nanotech in our country, Ethiopia.

As you know Africa as a whole  is not as such advanced in science in general and in nanoscience in particular. But, currently the government of Ethiopia has a shown a very wonderful interest in science &and technology  and particularly in nanoscience, biotechnology, materials science, genetic engineering, biomedical energineering, renewable energy etc. Ethiopia has been also  the first African country and second to China in the world list to participate more students ( more than 450) in the Erasmus Mundus ( European top level) academic programme. So,  we can not say this much has done in nanoscience in our country  so far except some works that are being done at Addis Ababa university in the area of solar energy and polymer science. However, now we are highly motivated and determined to quickly introduce it in all the academic levels and establish a separate central laboratory for it. Currently  we are preparing the concept note for the establishment of a central national laboratory and probably we will also organize one nanoscience event,whcih we strongly believe our government will support it as it is doing currently though its embassies in Europe.


So it is with great respect to express our thanks for the nanoscience community in general and the editor in particular and we will see soon nanoscience contributing a lot to the betterment of life for Ethiopians.


Will come with more updates soon

Can you add any information about nanotech in Ethiopia. It will be really interesting to read about nanotech in your country.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
