The social and economic challenges of nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is a new arena of science and engineering. Its early products mark only modest steps forward from those already in use, but its potential is immense. ... We are grateful to Professor Stephen Wood of the ESRC Centre for Organisation and Innovation and his colleagues for writing this report, which sets out the technological potential of this new field and illustrates very clearly the issues which nanotechnology raises for society as a whole. It has been produced by a team of practitioners drawn from the social and physical sciences, a form of collaboration that we are keen to encourage.
