Nanotech Reports & Presentations

The NC State Nanotechnology Initiative releases its FY 09-10 Annual Report (pdf) (July 1, 2010). This report highlights the NC State Nano Initiative's efforts in FY 09-10 to foster nanotechnology research, education, and industry outreach activities at the university and in the community.

"Investing in the South’s Nanotech Future" by the NC Dept. of Commerce's Office of Science & Technology (pdf) (July 7, 2010). Drs. John Hardin and Sharlini Sankaran of the NC Dept. of Commerce's Office of Science & Technology published this nanotechnology policy piece through the Southern Growth Policies Board, a non-partisan public policy think tank based in Research Triangle Park that is dedicated to strengthening the South’s economy and creating the highest possible quality of life.

"Recommendations on the Environmentally Responsible Development of Nanotechnology" from the Research Triangle Environmental Health Collaborative (July 1, 2010). The 2009 Summit on Environmentally Responsible Development of Nanotechnology identified critical issues in nano-enabled product development and manufacturing and explored the nanomanufacturing landscape so businesses can overcome barriers to success related to environmental/occupational health concerns. The summit's outcome is a guidance document that highlights these critical issues and provides business and policymakers with recommendations about how to successfully address them.
