Trans-Atlantic Workshop

Transatlantic Workshop on Nanotechnology Innovation and Policy

The Transatlantic Workshop on Nanotechnology Innovation and Policy, which was held March 24–26, 2010, engaged early career scholars from the US and Europe with scientists, private sector and governmental representatives, public policy and international affairs experts, and other stakeholders from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss the development and implications of nanotechnology research and commercialization. The workshop involved the presentations below and resulted in a special issue of the Journal of Technology Transfer on nanotechnology innovation policy (see DOI 10.1007/s10961-011-9224-9 for an overview of the special issue). The European Union Center of Excellence (EUCE) at Georgia Institute of Technology sponsored the workshop, in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta. Additional support was provided by the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy, the Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS-ASU) through National Science Foundation Award 0531194, the Georgia Tech Program in Science, Technology and Innovation Policy, and the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research at the University of Manchester. The contributions of all sponsors and partners are gratefully acknowledged. All findings and opinions expressed in the papers are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of the sponsors.
