Addressing the Socially Responsible Development of Nanotechnology - Event

While science and technology conducted at the nanoscale deal with the minutest constituents of matter, they may give rise to ethical issues of gargantuan proportion. Those issues must be addressed proactively and head on by science, industry, and government to ensure nano meets its big potential as the economic driver. This win-win approach to nano R&D and nano commercialization is not only the most socially responsible path but it is also the most fiscally savvy course for the nascent technology's long-term viability.

To that end, legal, business, and regulatory experts will share their views on how to achieve the socially responsible development of nanotechnology. Panelists include:

  • Erik Flom, Ph.D., J.D., principal and patent specialist at Welsh & Katz, Ltd.;
  • George Nassos, Ph.D., director of the environmental management program and professor at Illinois Institute of Technology's (IIT's) Stuart School of Business; and
  • Michael Radnor, Ph.D., professor of management and organizations at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management and director of the Center for Technology Innovation Management.

Nigel M. de S. Cameron, Ph.D., director of IIT's Center on Nanotechnology and Society (Nano & Society), and associate dean and research professor of bioethics at Chicago-Kent College of Law, will provide introductory remarks. The panel will be moderated by Michele Mekel, J.D., M.H.A., M.B.A., associate director/legal fellow of Nano & Society.

Appetizers and beverages will be served. Please RSVP to:

Thursday, October 5
5:30 pm
Chicago-Kent College of Law Auditorium 565 W. Adams Street
