USA PCAST meeting on Nanotech

In nano on June 4, 2007 at 12:21 am

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) is scheduled to meet in open session on Monday, June 25, 2007, in Arlington, VA. The PCAST subcommittee on nanotechnology has convened representative experts from academia, industry, and non-governmental organizations to provide an overview of nanotechnology applications and implications. The PCAST subcommittee is tentatively scheduled to hear presentations on applications of nanotechnology, with specific examples of nanotechnology-based innovation and commercialization across a range of products and industries. The PCAST also is tentatively scheduled to hear presentations on the environmental, health, and safety implications of nanotechnology from a range of perspectives. The presentations are intended to inform, in part, the Council’s review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative and assessment of progress towards realizing the benefits of nanotechnology advances.

Additional information and the final agenda will be posted at the PCAST web site at: http://www.ostp.gov/PCAST/pcast.html, where interested participants may also register.
