Rapport sur les nanotechnologies

Résultats du questionnaire Delphi

mardi 21 décembre 2004

The purpose of this two-round Delphi study was to identify and rate important forms of nanotechnology-related environmental pollution and health hazards that could result from military activity.

Attached is a copy of the Nanotech report - a good example of futures research in that a problem is forecasted so that we might act today to prevent or reduce the problem in the future. There are many great applications of nanotech to benefit humanity as documented in the Challenge 14 on science and technology, but the attached is a special report to alert us to the potential down sides and what research might help prevent these down sides.

Les micro et nano systèmes permettent un champ d’application diversifié et grandissant. En France, le ministère de la Recherche a lancé plusieurs projets, comme le programme Nanosciences pour coordonner et développer la recherche fondamentale dans ce domaine, ou le projet RMNT (Réseau de recherche en Micro et Nano technologies), chargé de favoriser la coopération entre industriels et laboratoires publics.
