Nanotechnology taskforce is launched
The University of Surrey is launching a UK Nanotechnology Taskforce today to encourage the government to develop a coherent strategy on the future of nanotechnology.
The taskforce, led by Labour MP Ian Gibson, has been convened to raise the profile of the subject across all levels of government and open debate about the use of nanotechnology in the UK.
The economic, social and environmental benefits of nanotechnology will be examined while addressing concerns about safety and ethical issues.
