About Foresight Nanotech Institute
Foresight Nanotech Institute’s mission is to ensure the beneficial implementation of nanotechnology.

Foresight Activities

Founded in 1986, we were the first organization to educate society about the benefits and risks of nanotechnology. At that time our focus was on preparing society for nanotechnology, then a little known science and technology.

Today, with the basic framework of public understanding in place, we are focusing on advancing beneficial nanotechnology. Our efforts are turned to guiding nanotechnology research, public policy and education to address six major challenges that humanity faces.

The six Foresight Nanotechnology Challenges are the framework for our work. This work is accomplished by providing balanced, accurate and timely information to help society understand and prepare for nanotechnology through public policy activities, publications, guidelines, networking events, tutorials, conferences, roadmaps, and prizes.

We work closely with governments, multi-national organizations, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), environmental groups, the policy community, professional associations, and civic sector organizations to achieve our goal of broad based nanotechnology education and public policy improvement.
