Securing the Promise of Nanotechnology: Is U.S. Environmental Law Up To the Job?

Securing the Promise of Nanotechnology: Is U.S. Environmental Law Up To the Job? summarizes the output of a multi-stakeholder dialogue hosted by ELI and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, held earlier this year. The Dialogue brought together noted scientists, lawyers, and policymakers to examine how US laws and regulations, as well as additional means of governance such as voluntary programs and industry standards, can be used effectively to address the environmental, health, and safety implications of nanotechnologies. Visit ELI’s Nanotechnology Initiative Web page to learn more about ELI’s efforts to develop an effective environmental, health, and safety governance structure for nanotechnologies.
