Report Title: Catholic Plea for Broader Debate on Ethics of Nanomedicine
Report ID: 286
Date: 1/26/2007
Report Type: News Article
URL: [nf06~modul~showmore~folder~99999~scc~news~sci.....]
Country: European Union
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: The secretariat of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) recently published an opinion, produced by its Bioethics Reflection Group meeting of 17 October 2006 titled “Opinion on some ethical issues raised by Nanomedicine”. The COMECE insists that given the many uncertainties concerning the properties of nanoparticles, particular attention should be paid to a thorough risk assessment. The precautionary principle should therefore be applied in tandem with the “principle of initiative”. Risk research must be carried out rigorously without pressure from industrial or scientific circles. Political decisions taken in this area must be characterised by complete transparency, and a large debate is required. The COMECE group’s opinion does not assess whether current policy of the European Commission to promote responsible nanotechnology development is in line with the group’s recommendations.

Report Title: Nanotechnology in Consumer Products
Report ID: 258
Date: 10/1/2006
Author: Michael Gleiche, Holger Hoffschulz, Steve Lenhert
Report Type: General Report
Publication: Nanoforum
URL: [nf06~modul~showmore~folder~99999~scid~421~.html]
Country: European Union
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: More and more consumer products are branded with the buzzword “nano” or nanotechnology. Are we witnessing the onset of an emerging technology or is it just a sophisticated advertisement strategy? If the technology is true, what is the added value to certain products and does the consumer really benefit? In general the products claiming to contain nanotechnology do indeed exploit nanoscale effects, primarily interface effects but also a few quantum effects. Interestingly, the products that proudly use the “nano” brand are only a small percentage of the number of consumer products that actually contain nanotechnologies, for instance in the microelectronics, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food industries. The following report focuses on consumer products emerging in various commercial sectors which claim to have nanotechnological products on the European market.

Report Title: Outcome of the Open Consultation on the European Strategy for Nanotechnology
Report ID: 250
Date: 12/1/2004
Author: Ineke Malsch and Mireille Oud
Report Type: Study
URL: [nanosurvey6.pdf]
Country: European Union
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: Nanotechnology is emerging as one of the key technologies of the 21st Century and is expected to enable developments across a wide range of sectors that can benefit citizens and improve industrial competitiveness. However, there are concerns that some aspects of nanotechnology may introduce new health, environmental and societal risks, which need to be addressed. In May 2004 the European Commission published the Communication “Towards a European Strategy for Nanotechnology” in which an integrated and responsible approach was advocated. This Communication has been discussed at the political level in the European Council under the Irish and Dutch Presidencies. The aim of the survey conducted by Nanoforum was to assess the wider response to the Commission’s proposed strategy and provide input to shape future European initiatives.

URL: [nf06~modul~showmore~folder~99999~scid~341~.html]
Country: European Union
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: In this report, the Nanoforum consortium presents the present state of the art of the public and scientific debate on benefits, risks, and ethical, legal and social implications of nanotechnology in Europe and other parts of the world. It also gives an overview of relevant research groups, funding programs, projects and networks in Europe. Finally it reviews position papers of NGO’s, industrial associations and political parties, which are already participating in the emerging political debate on nanotechnology, as well as debates initiated by governments, the European Commission and parliaments, and gives access to media coverage of nanotechnology. Since this report was first published it has been updated twice: the first update was published in October 2005, and an article on nanoethics in 2025 by Louis Laurent was added in July 2006.



Report Title: Nanotechnology in the EU?: Bioanalytical and Biodiagnostic Techniques
Report ID: 242
Date: 9/1/2004
Author: Christof Ruch
Report Type: Fact Finding Report
Publication: Nanoforum.org
URL: [nanoforumnanobioreport.pdf]
Country: European Union
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: The aim of this report is to identify European organizations from both the private and public sectors that are using or developing analytical or diagnostic techniques, in biotechnology, medicine and related fields that are based on nanotechnology advances. Research exploiting and developing these technologies is central to the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, which have combined global market values of several hundred billion euros each year. R&D in nanoanalytical and diagnostic techniques is however fragmented across Europe and if these activities were documented in a central resource, to which all interested parties could have ready access, then this would strengthen the European market with respect to that of other global regions.

Country: Other
Organization: nanoforum.org
Summary: The potential of nanotechnology to revolutionize the health care, textile, materials, information and communication technology, and energy sectors has been well-publicized. However, the application of nanotechnology to the agricultural and food industries has only been addressed by a United States Department of Agriculture in a roadmap published in September 2003. The prediction is that nanotechnology will transform the entire food industry, changing the way food is produced, processed, packaged, transported, and consumed. This short report will review the key aspects of these transformations, highlighting current research in the agrifood industry and what future impacts these may have.
