Rules for Dwarfs – Risk Regulation of Nanotechnology and its International Context

International Conference, Loccum, Germany, 30 November – 2 December 2009

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

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.
