Review of the Federal Strategy to Address Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials


Project Scope:

A study committee of the National Research Council will review the draft document entitled "Federal Strategy for Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials," which is expected to be publicly released by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative in September 2007. This committee will plan a workshop and evaluate the scientific and technical aspects of the draft strategy and comment in general terms on how this strategy will develop information needed to support the EHS risk assessment and risk management needs with respect to nanomaterials. In its evaluation the committee will take into consideration the report, Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials (NSET, 2006) and other governmental and non-governmental reviews identifying EHS research priorities.

The project sponsors are the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO).

The approximate starting date for the project is 10/1/2007.

A report will be issued at the end of the project in approximately 12 months
from the starting date.

Update 11/12/08: The project duration has been extended. The report is expected to be issued by February 28, 2009.
