A Research Strategy for Environmental, Health,
and Safety Aspects of Engineered Nanomaterials

Requested by Congress in P.L. 111-8, this is the first of two reports on the federal nanotechnology research program by the National Academies. This initial report outlines a framework to implement an integrated research plan that addresses the environmental, health, and safety aspects of engineered nanomaterials, including identifying short- and long-term research priorities and estimating resources necessary to implement such a plan.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 25, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
