About The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies
The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies is an initiative launched by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and The Pew Charitable Trusts in 2005. It is dedicated to helping business, government and the public anticipate and manage possible health and environmental implications of nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is the ability to measure, see, manipulate and manufacture things usually between 1 and 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter; a human hair is roughly 100,000 nanometers wide. Experts believe nanotechnology will lead to the Next Industrial Revolution. Last year, $50 billion in manufactured goods incorporated nanotechnology. By 2014, Lux Research projects that $2.6 trillion in global manufactured goods will incorporate nanotech, or about 15 percent of total global output.
