Nanotechnology - the application of scientific knowledge to control matter at the nanoscale - has been leading revolutionary advances in medicine, electronics, energy and many other fields.
At the same time, as the National Resource Council recently warned, "The increasing use of engineered nanoscale materials in industrial and consumer products will result in greater exposure of workers and the general public to these materials." Potential environmental, health, and safety ("EHS") problems have led to proposed legislation, increasing regulation, and increasing attention from insurance and products liability experts.
Building on last year's successful workshop on the regulation of nanotechnology, NanoReg & Keller and Heckman are pleased to announce Nanotechnology Today, a series of webinars designed to address the current industry outlook for nanotechnology under the new Administration and the challenges associated with the safe development of nano-enhanced products.
This series features respected experts on several important topics in the rapidly changing world of nanotechnology regulatory policy and safety.
The webinars will deliver live content via the internet and can be attended from the convenience of an attendee's home or office where multiple attendees can participate for the cost of a single registration. The series offers small companies the assurance that they can keep abreast of science, policy, the law, and best practices.
Individual Webinar: $145
Nanotechnology Today Webinar Series (all 4 webinars): $495
