Interim report on Europe's nanotechnology action plan released

Abstract:
A report released last week by the European Commission summarizes the actions taken and progress made during 2005-2007 in relation to the key areas identified in the Nanosciences & Nanotechnology Action Plan (Europe's equivalent of the U.S. NNI) for Europe 2005-2009 - Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies: An action plan for Europe 2005-2009.

The European Commission plays two important roles in the development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies; as policy maker and as funding body for research and innovation. The "integrated, safe and responsible approach" proposed by the EC in 2004 has been agreed by stakeholders and is now the core of the EU's nanotechnology policy.
