NEW: the ExtroBritannia documents section

Nanotechnoloy and nanoscience public consultation

In June 2003 the UK Government commissioned the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering to carry out an independent study of likely developments and whether nanotechnology raises or is likely to raise new ethical, health and safety or social issues which are not covered by current regulation. An entry to the study was submitted by two ExtroBritannia regulars, highlighting our concerns that nanotechnology's development might suffer in a similar way to GM crops due to the action of idelogically motivated pressure groups.
