The American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) has made available the results of a comprehensive review of the core federal environmental statutes to assess the suitability of each to address issues pertinent to human health and the environment arising from applications of nanotechnology.
The American Society for Precision Engineering (ASPE) focuses on many areas that are important in the research, design, development, manufacture and measurement of high accuracy components and systems such as precision controls, metrology, interferometry, materials, materials processing, nanotechnology, optical fabrication, precision optics, precision replication, scanning microscopes, semiconductor processing, standards and ultra-precision machining.
The Converging Technologies Bar Association is the first professional association in the world dedicated to addressing the multi-faceted impact of converging technologies. With its collective focus on nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and other related sciences and technologies, the CTBA provides a rich forum for bringing clarity and focus to the legal, ethical, and societal issues generated by the convergence of these provinces.
The Graphene Stakeholders Association (GSA) was founded as a non-profit organization to help promote the responsible development of graphene-based products. The GSA was created to foster graphene-based education, technical collaboration, scientific exchange, and value and job creation through successful commercialization. It is envisioned that GSA members will be part of a premier network that joins all major graphene stakeholders – researchers, government agencies, producer and user companies.
A non-profit organization, IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. The IEEE name was originally an acronym for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. Today, the organization's scope of interest has expanded into so many related fields, that it is simply referred to by the letters I-E-E-E.
The International Association of Nanotechnology (IANT), is a non-profit organization with the goals to foster scientific research and business development in the areas of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for the benefits of society.
The Materials Research Society is a not-for-profit organization which brings together scientists, engineers and research managers from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to share findings in the research and development of new materials of technological importance
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) is the premier trade association representing the U.S. semiconductor industry, uniting 95 companies responsible for more than 85 percent of semiconductor production in this country.
