Nanotech is moving out of laboratories and into factories, stores and homes, and waste streams. Governments around the world are looking at ways to ensure workplace, consumer, and environmental health and safety. Are current regulations adequate? Will countries take similar approaches to oversight, especially in Europe and America? Where is there already agreement, and where are possible differences? What role will international organizations play? Please join our panelists as they discuss their perspectives.
