Global Regulation of Nanotechnologies Conference in Boston, May 7 to 8

Boston, MA | Posted on April 6th, 2010

The conference will identify best practices that address the needs of industries, the public and regulators. Speakers include representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Brazil Ministry of Science and Technology, the Korean government, the International Conference of Chemicals Management and National Science Foundation-funded university-industry collaborations.

Speakers at the Global Regulation of Nanotechnologies Conference will discuss the challenges, gaps and opportunities of the current legal framework for nanotechs and its ability to protect workers, companies, consumers and the global commons. Panels will focus on domestic and international regulation, intellectual property rights, commercial aspects of nanotech development, and ethical issues.

The conference is open to government employees, industry experts, consumer groups, lawyers, and academics. Continuing Legal Education accreditation, including ethics credits, will be sought for the conference.

The cost is $200 for academic/non profit/public officials; $300 for private sectors; and $20 for students.
