Nanotechnology and Risk, Part 5

Abstract:
Part 5: Conclusion and Recommendations

The term nanotechnology applies to two very different fields. Nanoscale technology risks arise largely from medical and environmental risks of nanoparticles, which is being addressed by organizations such as Rice University's CBEN and projects such as the U.K. Royal Society's report and the U.S. National Science Foundation's recent workshop. It appears that this risk has been recognized and is being addressed, though industry as well as environmental groups encourage more public funding for studies of nanoparticles.
