About this webinar
Nanotechnology promises to provide solutions to some of the major problems people face today, but regulators are concerned about nano-specific risks that might arise from use. This webinar looked at the current regulatory environment, both in the EU and elsewhere and how regulation could enhance innovation in this dynamic sector.
