Discussion on Role of Nanotechnology in the 2010s at AAAS Auditorium

A discussion on nanotechnology will be conducted as a section of the 2011 Science & Society: Global Challenges Discussion Series at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Auditorium located at 1200 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.

Nanotechnology has been in the limelight since the 1990s and praised as a revolutionary technology for several advanced fields from textiles to electronics, biomedicine, and transportation to energy, paving the way for the establishment of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) in 2000.

The discussion titled ‘Nanotechnology in the 2010s: The Teen Years’ will address several burning questions related to nanotechnology including whether advanced products such as water treatment systems, solar photovoltaic cells, pharmaceuticals, electronic displays and lighting are reached the commercial stage, or NNI is still in its nascent stage. The discussion will also analyze the way research funds to be allocated by the United States provide economic advancements.

This discussion is the fourth of a four-part series of candid conversations and public forums with experts analyzing policy topics on global issues at the AAAS. The Georgetown University Program on Science in the Public Interest, the American Chemical Society (ACS), Technology and Congress and the AAAS Center for Science are the sponsors of the Global Challenges Discussion Series. ACS is participating for the third time in the event.
