Abstract

This document reflects discussions from the Risk Management Methods and Ethical, Legal, and Societal Implications of Nanotechnology Workshop, held March 30-31, 2010. Orgaized by a multi-sector planning team, this workshop capped a four-part series of public workshops to examine environmental, health and safety issues related to nanotechnology research. Participants from government agencies, academia, citizens, industry, nongovernmental organizations, and other stakeholders joined in robust discussions on the state of the science for risk management and for ethical legal and societal concerns.
