Nanotechnology for Sustainable Development

You may find several interesting articles, on Nanotechnolgy for development, posted at dgCommunities (http://nanotechnology.developmentgateway.org/).

Nanotechnology and Environment (http://www.unep.org/geo/yearbook/yb2007/PDF/7_Emerging_Challenges72dpi.pdf)

Nanotechnology has enormous potential for social, economic and environment benefit-from innovative medical techniques to saving on materials and energy, as well as advance in detection and remediation of pollution. This document describe that with environmental impact as yet largely unknown and public controls largely absent, more systematic research and sector specific policies are necessary.

Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology for Health (ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/nanotechnology/docs/nanomedicine_bat_en.pdf)
This document describes the potential of nanomedicine to address clinical needs in significant diseases. It identifies those diseases that cause the most suffering for patients
and the highest burden on society, and for which nanomedicine is expected to have a major impact. It describes where in the care-process and by which technology nanomedicine could have an impact. Finally it develops a Strategic Research Agenda, prioritising the most important technologies, which Europe has to develop in the near future, to realise the potential of nanomedicine for health care.
