Chapter Chapter 1 in Managing Risk in Nanotechnology, 2016, pp 1-6 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract No single regulatory or governance strategy may be called upon that would singularly fulfill the actualization and promise of nanotechnology(ies) in terms of its universal societal adoption and acceptance. Instead, the obstacles and pitfalls that could derail its potential are scattered and varied, appearing in a multitude of disparate problem spaces and disciplines. The latter underlies the motivation behind this book. Acknowledging the multidisciplined character of nanotechnology, this book examines the core disciplines where the most troublesome issues are expected to appear (Part 1) and accordingly focuses on viable remedies (Part 2).
