Abstract: In this research, we use the concepts of "national technology policy" as well as the "firm technology strategy" in defining a new definition for "national technology strategy". Then, by examining several national technology strategies in a variety of fields in different Countries the national nanotechnology strategy for Iran is developed. Furthermore, using capability-effectiveness matrix and SWOT analysis we identify strategies of nanotechnology development in Iran. Finally, considering other countries' strategies and the results of PROMETHEE Method, we prioritize different areas of nanotechnology for Iranian economy, and test for the validity of the extracted strategies.
