Timeline: National nanotechnology policies and regulations
(Nanowerk News) This Timeline: Nanotechnology (pdf), compiled by the Institute for Science, Society and Policy at the University of Ottawa, outlines important events related to nanotechnology policy and regulation in Canada, Australia, the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States with an emphasis on developments since 2000.
For the purposes of this timeline, Nanotechnology is a term used to describe the manipulation of matter on the molecular scale.
For background purposes, the research team has also chosen to include broader developments in science policy as well as significant events outside of the focus regions where deemed appropriate.
