WITH MORE nanotechnology-containing products hitting the market, the need for research on the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) impacts of these engineered nanomaterials is vital. And while more federal dollars are going into such research, experts agree that the lack of a common list of priorities is hampering assessments on the risk of this technology to the public and the environment.
Now, both government and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) are taking on this challenge by identifying nanotech EHS research priorities and developing strategies to get answers about relative risks and benefits of various nanotechnologies. But time is of the essence, and as the federal government plods toward a strategic plan, several NGOs have already released or are about to release strategic plans of their own, leaving some observers to question just how useful the federal strategy will end up being.
