The arm of the federal government responsible for coordinating nanotechnology research and regulations across the country has called on experts from North Carolina State University to craft a white paper that will lay out how government and industry officials should communicate potential risks associated with nanotechnology to the media and the public.
If you work in the electronic, biomedical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, energy, catalytic, and materials industries and your employer uses nanoparticles or materials that contain nanoparticles, you may be at risk for exposure.
Designer labels have a lot of cachet - a principle that's equally true in fashion and physics. The future of nuclear physics is in designer isotopes - the relatively new power scientists have to make specific rare isotopes to solve scientific problems and open doors to new technologies.
In the future, the rigid electronic boards will not place restrictions in the design of new products, as the manufacturing technology is being developed towards more flexible, design-friendly and inexpensive form of electronics. New manufacturing methods will change the production processes and will enable the manufacturing of entirely new kinds of products.
The UK's Technology Strategy Board has revealed its three-year strategic plan and outlined how it will promote and invest in technology-driven innovation for the benefit of business, to increase sustainable economic growth and to improve quality of life.
A cure for cancer, a solution to rising fuel prices or a whole new generation of super-strong materials coming out of the Hoosier state? This and much more possibly lies within the emerging realm of nanotechnology, according to a covey of national nanotechnology experts in Indiana on May 2, 2008.
The House Science and Technology Committee yesterday unanimously supported H.R. 5940, the National Nanotechnology Initiative Amendments Act, which will update and expand the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
