The Meridian Institute publishes daily summaries of news stories on nanotechnology for development, reporting on key innovations and technological applications, policy issues, risk-related information and technology transfer. While these stories cover a wide spectrum of disciplines — from health to materials to environment to agriculture — the institute also offers a compilation of water-related nanotech news summaries for those interested in the applications and implications of using nanotechnology for clean water.
The institute also runs projects and holds workshops on key issues — including the use of nanotechnology in water treatment — and publishes relevant background papers, presentations and case studies.
Nanowerk is a clearing house for information about nanotechnology and nanoscience. It publishes regular news on key developments and a daily feature article — written in cooperation with scientists — looking at new findings, reviewing current research or exploring interesting applications such as water treatment.
Nanowerk also hosts a database of more than 1,900 nanomaterials and links to key events, reports, documents, magazines, organisations and blogs relevant to nanotechnology. Its video library links to dozens of animations and videos about nanotech research, speeches and lectures.
The Responsible Nano Forum is a non-profit charity that publishes information on the opportunities and risks presented by nanotechnology, aiming to improve public understanding of this subject and encourage public participation in the debate.
The forum runs public engagement programmes and hosts debates on the social and ethical issues of using nanotechnology.
The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies, a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts in the United States, is dedicated to minimising the possible risks of nanotechnologies as these technologies advance and ensuring public engagement in decision-making.
It publishes research results and meeting reports on topics such as agriculture and food, medicine and water treatment. The project also publishes news on its own projects and other key developments, and lists relevant events, mostly in the United States. A photo gallery provides access to images of some nano-based products and events.
