Risk governance of nanotechnology
(Nanowerk News) Mike Treder over at the Responsible Nanotechnology blog brings to our attention a newly released report from the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue. It's title: "The Risk Governance of Nanotechnology: Recommendations for Managing a Global Issue". You can find it in our Nanowerk Report Library.
This document reports on the discussions undertaken at the Conference "The Risk Governance of Nanotechnology: Recommendations for Managing a Global Issue" held at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue on the 6th and 7th of July 2006. Stakeholders from industry, government, research and civil society gathered to give feedback on the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC) White Paper on Nanotechnology Risk Governance and to explore how its recommendations could be implemented.
