Companies look forward to Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Wyden is working to keep nanotechnology in front of Washington`s agenda, he said, and to protect it from measures he believes could harm it, such as export controls. But he asked a few things from business and political leaders, both on state and federal levels, to help keep things moving.

Among the three things he sees as essential for U.S. nanotechnology leadership are free and open markets, the expanding education to encourage larger numbers of engineers and scientists to participate in the field, as well as a general willingness to get out ahead - the least of his worries about those in attendance.

Wyden said that continuing to offer the field free and open markets are paramount. The Senator on Monday sent a letter to Carlos Gutierrez, secretary of commerce, urging him to resist putting export controls on nanotechnology.

"I don`t think anything would chill investment in American nanotechnology faster than putting in place export control," Wyden said. It`s a "prescription for our country to lose jobs."
