Don't mind the gap — bridge it. NanoTech Insight aims to stimulate a worldwide dialogue on the planned advancement of nanotechnology, particularly with respect to the power of this new technology to overcome the current gaps between scientific communities in the industrialized world and those in the developing world.
Only a planned and integrated development of nanoscience involving all global research communities can hope to provide comprehensive solutions for sustainable development and address the most critical areas in need of targeting for developing countries (such as drug delivery, water remediation, agricultural productivity, etc.).
This conference not only draws together nanoscientists of all stripes, but it also places strong emphasis on the applications of nanotechnology for sustainable development with special sessions on nano ethics, environmental applications, medical and pharmaceutical applications of nanotech research, and nanotechnology for industry.
A serious discussion about the potential risks and benefits of nanotechnology is desperately needed at this time in order to bring about "responsible nanotechnology" and its great potential for sustainable development worldwide. Indeed, the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have their best chance of being met with the ongoing advancements of nanoscience.
This conference brings together the best and brightest from global research communities, with particular support for scientists from developing countries whose voices are critical to this much-needed dialogue. By bringing together leading nanoscientists from across the world and by including Chemists, Physicists, Biologists, Engineers, Medical and Business professionals and government representatives, this conference aims to jump start this much needed nano-dialogue by the global scientific community.
