NANOSCIENCE IS THE SCIENCE OF THE EXTREMELY TINY. Nanoscience is concerned with understanding these effects; nanotechnologies aim to exploit them to create novel structures, devices and systems for a variety
of different industries.

Nanoscience discusses the schematics on how to assemble them nanobots & the different technologies that are needed to materialize it. Nanotechnology is putting that schematic to practical use.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology involve studying and working with matter on an ultra-small scale. One nanometre is one-millionth of a millimetre and a single human hair is around 80,000 nanometres in width. Nanoscience and nanotechnology encompass a range of techniques rather than a single discipline, and stretch across the whole spectrum of science, touching medicine, physics, engineering and chemistry.(source the Royal Society)

Nanoscience specifically refers to the study of objects that are very tiny and are in the range of ten to hundreds of nanometers. Nanotechnology, on the other hand, is the actual manipulation, application, and use of nanometer-sized objects and matter to produce different phenomena, or for specific technologies and applications.

First comes Nano Science then Technology. Just as the difference between Theory & practice.
Science developped does not mean Technology developped but converse is always true.
