Report Title: Prioritization of Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials
Report ID: 527
Date: 8/16/2007
Author: National Science and Technology Council
Report Type: Request for Opinion
URL: [Prioritization_EHS_Research_Needs_Engineered_.....]
Country: United States of America
Organization: National Science and Technology Council (US)
Summary: After the release of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)'s "EHS Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials" report, the Nanotechnology Environmental and Health Implications (NEHI) Working Group solicited public comment on prioritization of environmental, health, and safety research needs. This document contains the Working Group's twenty-five priorities and requests public comments. Prioritization of research needs has been undertaken with three principles in mind: Prioritize research based on the value of information, leverage research funded by other governments when appropriate, and use adaptive management for research. Earlier public comments suggested prioritizing short-term research if the research has the opportunity to provide useful results or is relevant to technology nearing commercialization. High priority research needs include developing methods to detect nanomaterials in biological matrices, the environment, and the workplace; developing methods to quantify and characterize exposure to nanomaterials; understand the effects of nanomaterials in individuals of a species; and identify population groups exposed to nanomaterials.

Report Title: Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials
Report ID: 525
Date: 9/1/2006
Author: National Science and Technology Council
Report Type: Advisory Report
URL: [NNI_EHS_research_needs.pdf]
Country: United States of America
Organization: National Science and Technology Council (US)
Summary: As part of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the National Science and Technology Council established the Nanotechnology Environmental and Health Implications Working Group in 2003. The Working Group prepared this document to list research needs and to inform research, risk assessment, and risk management activities. These research needs will be further prioritized and gaps between them and existing research will be addressed. In the area of instrumentation, metrology, and analytical methods, there is a need to standardize definitions and methods for assessing particle shape, structure, and surface area. In the area of human health, many routes of exposure for nanoparticles remain unknown and research is needed to gain an understanding of transport and absorption of nanomaterials throughout the body. With regard to the environment, more study is needed to understand how nanomaterials transform under different environmental conditions. Other areas of concern include workplace exposure and monitoring protocols and risk management. For 2007, the federal government intends to budget $44 million for environmental, health, and safety research to begin to address these concerns.

Report Title: Strategy for Nanotechnology-Related Environmental, Health, and Safety Research
Report ID: 511
Date: 2/1/2008
Report Type: Government Report
URL: [NNI_EHS_Research_Strategy.pdf]
Country: United States of America
Organization: National Science and Technology Council (US)
Summary: In 2001, the National Nanotechnology Initiative was created to support the responsible development of nanotechnology. This document is the NNI's strategy for advancing research on the environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanomaterials. The National Research Council subsequently reviewed (see report ID 73) this strategy. The strategy calls for several federal groups to work together, including NIOSH, the FDA, and the EPA. Research priorities include developing methods to detect nanomaterials in biological matrices, developing methods for standardizing assessment of particle size, understanding the absorption and transport of nanomaterials throughout the body, developing in vivo and in vitro models for predicting human response to exposure, and understanding workplace exposure. All of the priorities and funding estimates for them are listed in this strategy.
