Public meeting Jan. 4 on research priorities on EHS aspects of engineered nanoscale materials

The Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Technology is holding a public meeting on Thursday, January 4, 2007 in Arlington, Va., to receive input on research needs related to the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) aspects of engineered nanoscale materials. The NSET Subcommittee is looking for input on the research needs and prioritization criteria for the research identified in Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials document released by the NSET Subcommittee on September 21, 2006. The report is available at www.nano.gov.

The public is invited to participate through oral presentations at the meeting or through written submissions sent electronically to the conference registration Web site at www.nano.gov/public_ehs.html.

Content of the meeting will be primarily organized around subject areas, including research prioritization criteria and the five research areas identified in the Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials document: Instrumentation, Metrology, and Analytical Methods; Nanomaterials and Human Health; Nanomaterials and the Environment; Health and Environmental Surveillance; and Risk Management Methods. Speakers are requested to indicate which of the subject areas they plan to address. Topics outside of those identified areas above also will be considered.

All comments and recommendations made at the meeting or in written submissions will be considered by the NSET Subcommittee in prioritizing EHS research needs. Input from multiple stakeholders with various interests will be valuable to the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), especially with regard to strategic and interim goals for filling the EHS information needs gaps for engineered nanoscale materials.
