Nanotechnology Oversight in Asia and Europe (2009-10)

This project examines emerging nanotechnology policies in selected Asian countries and the European Union. Funded by a Global Public Policy Network (GPPN) research grant, it is being conducted in collaboration with Prof. Darryl Jarvis and other colleagues at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore. 

The project examines recent developments in nanotechnology policy and regulation in China, India, Taiwan and the European Union. Based on field research and interviews with regulatory experts, the project team has produced detailed studies of each of the four cases. These were presented and discussed at an expert-level workshop held in Singapore in April 2010.
