GLRPPR Sector Resource: Nanotechnology: A Policy Primer

Title:
Nanotechnology: A Policy Primer

Abstract:
Nanoscale science, engineering, and technology -- commonly referred to collectively as "nanotechnology" -- is believed by many to offer extraordinary economic and societal benefits.

Congress has demonstrated continuing support for nanotechnology and has directed its attention particularly to three topics that may affect the realization of this hoped for potential: federal research and development (R&D) in nanotechnology; U.S. competitiveness in the field; and environmental, health, and safety (EHS) concerns. This report provides an overview of these topics and two others: nanomanufacturing and public attitudes toward nanotechnology.
