Nanotechnology & Development News
Meridian Institute's Nanotechnology and Development News ceased operation in September 2013 after 10 years of service on September 4, 2013. We appreciate the support over the years from our funders and subscribers. If additional funding becomes available, we will resume the news service. In the meantime, given Meridian Institute's long-term interest and work on nanotechnology issues, we would appreciate staying in touch with those in the field. Please feel free to contact Todd Barker, Senior Partner, Meridian Institute, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Previously, Nanotechnology and Development News provided succinct summaries of the most pertinent news stories, op-eds, journal articles, and reports on scientific innovations and technological applications; policy issues; risk-related information; intellectual property rights and access to data; technology transfer and capacity building; global and regional networks; and economic development.
Nanotechnology and Development News drew information from a diverse range of sources including peer-reviewed journals, international news wires, and a variety of publications form industry, government, and NGOs.
Nanotechnology and Development News is an example of the tools and strategies developed by Meridian Institute to help people solve problems and make informed decisions. Support for Nanotechnology and Development News is provided by the US Agency for International Development.
