The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office has announced that it will spearhead a public meeting to focus on “environmental health and safety questions for nanomaterials and nanotechnology-enabled products” and to “encourage joint US-EU programs of work that would leverage resources.” The March 10-11, 2011, workshop in Washington, D.C., will also “establish communities of research practice, including identification of key points of contact/ interest groups/themes between key US and EU researchers for near-term and future collaborations.” See Federal Register, February 15, 2011.
