5 billion Euro through its "Cooperation" programme for nanotechnology, nanosciences, materials and new production techniques as part of the 7th EU Research Framework Programme (2007-2013). In Germany, the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) has Minute particles with a vast market potential. 5 million Euro in 2007) and since 1997 provides special funding for nano-enterprises. In January 2000, the US government under President Clinton founded the "National Nanotechnology Initiative", which since then has been responsible for the sizeable financial funding of research and development activities.

The use of materials and surface properties that have now become possible through nanotechnology offer architecture, interior architecture and related disciplines a means of achieving greater energy efficiency and sustainable construction through innovation. The use of nanotechnology is not about jumping on a bandwagon, about being part of a supposed "nano fashion" with the sole purpose of keeping up with the latest trend. "If you pick up on it quick, you can say you were there" sings Robert Smith in a song from The Cure, "Jumping Someone Else's Train".

Volkswagen reacts to the stricter statutory conditions by developing a new production process. To ensure their long-term competitiveness, they employ billions of nanomachines, each less than half a millimetre in diameter, which are able to automatically construct as well as dismantle the lightweight structure of a new car, the Nanospyder. Thanks to the additive and highly flexible production process, the Nanospyder is optimised in all respects - weight, performance and energy consumption. Intelligent self-deforming zones anticipate the effects of external force and ensure the highest possible degree of security.
