EU observatory to guide policymakers on nanotechnologies

Abstract:
An EU project to establish a European Observatory on Nanotechnologies is seeking to address the lack of objective and independent information on nanotech for policymakers, industry and investors.

The ObservatoryNANOexternal project was launched as a first step on the way to establishing a permanent European Observatory on Nanotechnologies. Once established, it would provide "ongoing, independent support to decision-makers," according to the consortium.

Launched in April 2008, the project will be funded for four years from the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) and has a total budget of €4 million. The project consortium, led by the UK Institute of Nanotechnology (IoNexternal ), brings together partners from different fields of application of nanotech. Partners vary from a Danish nanoethics centre to the French atomic energy commission (CEA), and from the Technical University of Darmstadt to the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
