CRN has accepted the invitation to participate in a symposium on "Nanotechnology Governance: Environmental Management from a Global Perspective" scheduled for May 19, 2006 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. It will be co-hosted by the Environmental Law Institute and the Vanderbilt Center for Environmental Management Studies.
The Symposium, which will include approximately 40 invited participants from both the public and private sectors, is intended to:
- Focus on the development of environmental, health, and safety governance structures for nanotechnology from an international perspective.
- Examine how nanotechnology governance structures, including traditional regulation, voluntary programs, industry standards, disclosure, and other approaches, are developing in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
- Consider the implications for corporate environmental management of the development of disparate governance approaches.
We'll provide more information as the event draws nearer...
