UK Government’s research into the potential risks of nanoparticles

Abstract:
Richard Jones: As trailed in my last post, the UK government has published the first report from its programme of research into the potential health and environmental risks of engineered, free nanoparticles. Or rather, it’s published a document that reveals that there isn’t really a programme of research at all, in the sense of an earmarked block of funds and a set of research goals and priorities.
