The meaning and perspectives of nanotechnology for science, industry, regulatory bodies and society are disscussed. For each of these groups nanotechnology has a different meaning and different future.

For science - it is everyday life. The question is where next discoveries will appear soon.

For industry - it is a marketing question and price question. Is the labell nano good for an increase of sales? Will aditional cost of nanotechnology be payable?

For regulatory bodies - a challenge. Strong need for nano proeducts, but they are difficult to measure and characterise.
