Big Issues & Small Science
While science and technology conducted at the nanoscale deal with the minutest constituents of matter, they may give rise to ethical issues of gargantuan proportion. Those issues must be addressed proactively and head on by science, industry, and government to ensure nano meets its big potential as the economic driver. This win-win approach to nano R&D and nano commercialization is not only the most socially responsible path but it is also the most fiscally savvy course for the nascent technology¹s long-term viability.
To that end, legal, business, and regulatory experts will share their views on how to achieve the socially responsible development of nanotechnology.
