Intíl Risk Governance Council to take on nanotech

Christine Peterson: The International Risk Governance Council, an independent foundation started in 2003 at the instigation of Switzerland and based in Geneva, has given nanotechnology top level priority. Their nanotechnology fact sheet explains their plans, which include the usual examination of nanoparticle risks but also fourth-generation issues as well (e.g., nanomanufacturing including self-assembly and robotic systems, and the separate question of self-replication).
