US government delays nanotechnology safety measures
Date:10/31/2007

y environment, health, and safety researcha minimum of $50 million annually for research directly tied to oversight and regulatory needs and an estimated $95 million per year for exploratory research that is conducted within the scope of a federal strategic research program; (Previous analysis by Maynard shows that in 2005 the U.S. government spent approximately $11 million on highly relevant risk research.)
  • Launch a public-private research partnership program, with cost-sharing between industry and government, to address immediate and critical research questions on effective oversight; and
  • Appoint a top-level government leader responsible for the action needed to address the environment, health and safety challenges of nanotechnology.

There is no doubt that nanotechnology has the potential to make the world a better place and that members of the National Nanotechnology Initiative have great intentions to do the right thing. But given what is at stake herethe quality of our environment, the future vitality of the American economy, and the health of workers and consumersgood intentions are not enough, said Maynard.
