1st Annual Conference on Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy
Nanotechnology was incorporated into more than $50 billion in manufactured goods last year, according to Lux Research. By 2014, the market will grow to $2.6 trillion. By 2011, over $15 billion in nano-enabled drugs and therapeutics will sold-up from more than $3 billion in 2006. And industry experts project that nanotechnology will be incorporated into $20 billion worth of consumer food products by 2010.
Yet, despite this rapid commercialization, no nano-specific regulation exists anywhere in the world. Most regulatory agencies remain in an information-getting mode-lacking the legal and scientific tools, information and resources they need to adequately oversee exponential nanotechnology market growth.
Now, for the first time, you'll get to meet all the top officials from these government departments in one place and learn of their plans for regulating food and drug nanotech products. You'll hear what's really happening in Europe and Asia, on Wall Street, in the corridors of major corporations, in the more advanced laboratories, at forward-thinking universities and in the halls of Congress.
