An inventory of current research involving nanotechnology health and environmental implications

The emergence and development of sustainable nanotechnologies will depend on strategic, coordinated and integrated research addressing potential health and environmental risks. This inventory has been developed as a major tool to facilitate such research.

The inventory catalogs global government-funded research into the human health, safety and environmental implications of nanotechnology. While not comprehensive, it is designed to serve as a resource for researchers, policy makers and others engaged in ensuring the success of nanotechnologies through understanding and reducing potential risks. It also includes some research projects supported by industry, foundations and others.
