Since the creation of the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2008 the science budget has increased and new programs have been launch. After a brief introduction describing general aspects, including the structure of the Ministry and the role of the National Research Council, I will focus on the case of nanoscience and nanotechnology in our country: The main actors and their activities, new programs and facilities, international cooperation and technology oriented projects.
