Here's to Euro health in 2020

Nanomedicine at your service! (Europa, European Commission)

    One branch of the nano-revolution – the aptly named nanomedicine – is becoming something of a torchbearer for this often confusing, sometimes maligned but most definitely expanding field of scientific research and development (R&D). As evidence of its growing importance, an upcoming Commission-backed conference, called EuroNanoForum 2005, will focus on nanotechnology and the health of EU citizens.

    With European Commission and industry support, a four-day international conference and forum, running from 6-9 September 2005, will focus attention on ‘Nanotechnology and the Health of the EU Citizen in 2020’. Organised by the UK-based Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN), the event will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    According to the event organisers, the programme will explore key nanotechnology themes “from the point of view of EU strengths and improving the quality of life”. This is set against a background of the economics of future healthcare, demographics, business opportunities, and social and ethical considerations. More here
