A progress report on the Austrian Nanotechnology Action Plan of 2 March 2010 was called to order in 2012. It was shown that the country is a high-tech hub with great opportunities, for example, in the development of new materials and surface coatings, cosmetics and medicine. The major milestone was reaching out to interest in the public with a nanotechnology website supported by the Federal Government. Plan reassessment is due in 2015.
