Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies
The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies was established in 2005 as a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts. The Project is intended to address the social, political, and public safety aspects of nanotechnology.
Additional recommended knowledge
It intends in particular to look for research and policy gaps and opportunities in knowledge and regulatory processes, and to develop strategies for closing them.
The project's stated goal is "to inform the debate and to create an active public and policy dialogue. It is not an advocate either for, or against, particular nanotechnologies. Rather, the Project seeks to ensure that as these technologies are developed, potential human health and environmental risks are anticipated, properly understood, and effectively managed."
The project works with multiple US and foreign governments and organizations.
The Project's report on "Managing the Effects of Nanotechnology", written by J. Clarence (Terry) Davies in 2006, has been referred to and linked elsewhere.  They also produce an online database on Nanotechnology Health and Environmental Implications: An inventory of current research , also reported on elsewhere , and a series of PEN Reports. Their work has also been published in academic journals such as Nature Nanotechnology
A major activity of the Project is testimony on public forums. ,  , ,
