Advanced Manufacturing Providing the Foundation for Sustainable Economic Growth

Feb. 2012- Following up on recent announcements regarding the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, and the Report to the President on Ensuring American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing released last June by the Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), this week the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) has released a new National Strategic Plan for Advanced ...

Effectively Managing the Risks of Nanomaterials: Present Status and Future Challenges

Jan. 2012- Nanomaterials represent the building blocks of nanotechnology-enabled products and applications encompassing a broad range of substances and structures having features in the 1-100 nanometer range. Nanomaterials are of significant interest as they exhibit enhanced physical, chemical and electronic properties in comparison to their bulk counterparts. They can impact a range of applications ...

Announcing the New California Nanotechnology Industry Network (CalNIN) Website

Sep. 2011- A new website has been designed to be a platform for sharing information on nanotechnology policy, legislative, and regulatory initiatives in California. The website -- www.calnin.org -- provides regular updates on areas and initiatives that could potentially impact the development or use of nanomaterials in California. It also includes information on broader nano-initiatives, recognizing that ...

Advanced Manufacturing - Providing the Foundation for Sustainable Economic Growth

Following up on recent announcements regarding the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, and the Report to the President on Ensuring American Leadership in Advanced Manufacturing released last June by the Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), this week the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) has released a new National Strategic Plan for Advanced ...

Nanomanufacturing: path to implementing nanotechnology

Research and development work in nanoscience and nanotechnology has generated new fundamental understanding of physical phenomena and material behaviour at the nano-scale. This knowledge has resulted in discoveries of new materials, structures and devices. It is believed that these basic research investments should now lead to new products and applications. The general feeling is that ...

Nanomaterials Regulations: Balancing Insight with Oversight

The field of nanotechnology in generaland nanomanufacturing processes and nanomanufactured materials in particularpresent a new regulatory paradigm for commercial sectors, academics, and government oversight and funding agencies alike. In essense, how do we responsibly maintain the critical balance between the necessity of regulatory oversight and the industry of scientific innovation? ...

Nanotechnology Innovation--Two Aspects

In this talk, Dr. Kesan will discuss the challenges and issues posed by nanotechnology innovation for patent policy and for granting patent rights commensurate with innovation. Second, he will discuss how the insights from value-sensitive design can be applied to vindicate societal choices and preferences in emerging nanotechnologies.

Nanotechnology, Development and Public Policy

In this talk, Dr. Armstrong will discuss five points to think about in regards to Nanotechnology when dealing with development and public policy issues. Dr. Armstrong focuses on the vagueness of the term nanotechnology, the abstract nature in which it is conceptualized and what level of abstraction would be appropriate when conceptualizing it.

Nanotechnology: The Social and Ethical Issues

Recent action in Congress to reauthorize the U.S. federal nanotechnology research program offers the chance to address the social and ethical issues concerning the emerging scientific field, experts say. It is crucial to address social and ethical issues now as we consider both the substantial potential risks of nanotechnology and its possible significant contributions to our well-being and ...

Re-thinking scientific teams: competition, conflict and collaboration

In this talk, Dr. Gadlin will discuss the organizational barriers and breakdown of collaboration in the scientific community while focusing on recurring themes in collaborative disputes. He then presents means for resolving and responding to conflict confidentially through dispute resolution programs and pre-nuptial agreements between collaborators.

Symposium on Assessing the Economic Impact of Nanotechnology: Synthesis Report

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United States National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) held an international symposium, Assessing the Economic Impact of Nanotechnology, in March 2012. Hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington DC, it brought together participants from the public and private sectors with ...

Why Managing Research is not Managing Science

These are presentation slides for Dr. Rejeski's talk at the Nano and Society Workshop. In his talk, Dr. Rejeski discusses the increase and penetration of new nano products into the market and how this is a measure of its success. He then addresses the need for responsibility and education to address the publics desire for full-disclosure, pre-market testing, and third-party testing and ...
