Risk research is part of the U.S. government's 2008 nanotechnology budget
Deep inside their budget document the NSF outlines the proposed use of the requested $390 million. One Program Component Area (PCA) called "Societal Dimensions: Environmental Health & Safety (EHS)" sees its funding increase by over 12% (the largest year over year increase of all PCAs in the 2008 NSF budget) to $28.75 million.
This EHS research will address the sources of nanoparticles and nanostructured materials in the environment (in air, water, soil, biosystems, and working environment), as well as the non-clinical biological implications.
