OECD to Host Forum for Addressing Nanotechnology Innovation, Applications, Environment, Health and Safety at NanoBusiness 2008 Conference in New York

New York, NY | Posted on April 14th, 2008

The OECD is an international organization comprised of the world's 30 most developed economies and based in Paris. The United States Council for International Business is the American affiliate to the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD. Their panel, entitled "OECD: A Critical Forum for Addressing Nanotechnology Innovation, Application and EHS Concerns" will provide an overview of current work on nanotechnology at the OECD and how it will impact the global development of this emerging technology.

"The OECD has been doing tremendous work in the area of nanotechnology, and we're proud to welcome them to this year's NanoBusiness 2008 conference," said Sean Murdock, Executive Director, NanoBusiness Alliance. "They have assembled a stellar group of top executives to participate, and our attendees are sure to gain important insights from this prestigious group."

Scheduled on May 6th from 10:00 am - 11:30 am, the OECD panel will include presentations from the following:

* Terry Medley - DuPont, and co-chair of USCIB Nanotechnology Working Group
* Richard Johnson - Arnold and Porter, co-chair of USCIB Nanotechnology Working Group
* Peter Kearns - OECD
* Christopher Palmberg - OECD
* Jim Willis - EPA, Chair of WPMN
* Robert Rudnitsky - State Dept., Chair of WPN

"The nanotech initiatives at the OECD have significant ramifications for everyone working with these emerging technologies. Business has an opportunity to help shape policy through participating at this early stage," said Alix Heywood, Policy Manager - Nanotechnology, USCIB. "We are delighted that our members are so strongly engaged and enthusiastic about this work."

"To date, this type of information ha never before been presented at any Nanotechnology conference," added Vincent Caprio, Executive Director of the NY NanoBusiness Alliance and Event Director, "and we're honored to have the OECD share their groundbreaking work at our event."

Now in its seventh year, NanoBusiness 2008 will focus on the business side of nanotech innovations across multiple sectors, including cleantech, advanced materials, next generation electronics, medical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. The event is expected to attract hundreds of business leaders, investors, venture capitalists, scientists, engineers, and government officials. These visionaries who are driving the nanotechnology revolution will participate in over three days of comprehensive corporate presentations, in-depth panels, executive keynotes, educational sessions, and networking opportunities.
