This paper presents on-going research on developing a systematic process to help national decision makers define the R&D strategy and policy of emerging technologies. To demonstrate the process, nanotechnology for supporting the development of the food and agriculture sector in Thailand will be applied. In the research, analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is used as the main methodology. Then, a four-level hierarchical decision model (HDM) composed of the countrypsilas mission, objectives, technological goals, and research strategies is built. All elements in each decision level are developed based on the literature search and verified by experts.
