Rules for Dwarfs - Risk Regulation of Nanotechnology and its International Context International Conference, Loccum, Germany, 30 November – 2 December 2009

The Protestant Academy Loccum invites you to a conference on risk regulation of nanotechnology from a transatlantic perspective. We convene actors from Germany, Europe, the United States, and beyond to link previously separated regulatory debates.

Nanotechnology can only unfold its full economic potential, if rules for its use in Europe and elsewhere do not result in new barriers to trade. The political task, therefore, is the development of mutually compatible regulatory approaches in Europe and the United States. Participants will develop regulatory recommendations for German and European politics in frank and open discussions. This includes the prioritization of regulatory approaches and principles to guide the development of compatible regulatory systems on both sides of the Atlantic.

Further details are available at http://www.loccum.de/english/p0973ae.html.

You are invited to contribute to these discussions among experts from politics, business, academia, media, and civil society. Conference languages are English and German; translation services are provided.

Dr. Marcus Schaper, Conference Organizer
Dr. Fritz Erich Anhelm, Academy Director

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
