The Statnano Database website (www.statnano.com) provided the readers
with a comparison index of the global ranking of various states in the
field of nanotechnology based on the number of patents published in any
country between 2009 and 2011.
Statnano Database has been designed by Iran
Council (INIC) in a bid to continually monitor the status of various
countries in all indices of nanotechnology in the chain of science to
The main responsibility of the website is to continually monitor and
announce the status of indices for the development of science,
technology and innovation in nanotechnology in various countries,
determine the international and regional rank of the countries in those
indices, analyze nanotechnology development in various countries, and
provide information about the policy-making status of countries in
nanoscience, nanotechnology and nano-innovation.
Among the characteristics of the website, mention can be made of the
display of the countries’ status according to the indices in a special
page for each country. The visitors of the website can visit the
statistics of their own country at first, and then they can monitor the
statistics of other countries in the field of nanotechnology.
In addition to announcing the international rank of the countries,
the website provides the visitors with the following information for
each of scientific, technological and innovational indices in
• Presentation of nanotechnology development indices in the six
fields of investment, human resources, science production, technology
production and industry and market;
• Values of the most important indices, rank of each country in the
indices, and the chart of the changes in indices in the last five years;
• Values of the indices in different years for various countries with
the ability to rate the countries at international, regional and
international organization levels;
• Ability to display statistical data of the indices in the form of charts.
