Prof. Gonzalo Leon Serrano - Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

 

MODULE 3:  LAW & GUIDANCE

Ilise Feitshans, JD, ScM, DIR - Fellow in International Law of Nanotechnology 

How can law protect the benefits of nanotechnology while minimizing risk to public health?

Bringing together key actors in law and science through "Global Health Diplomacy” has been proven to solve public health problems.

This module examines Global Health Diplomacy with regard to:

  1. Legal definitions of nanotechnology,

  2. Nuts and bolts implemention of international laws about nanotechnology; including consumers’ and workers’ “Right to Know",

  3. Why commerce needs these laws.

 Upon completing this module, students will have greater understanding of regulatory frameworks for addressing unquantifiable risks to public health.

 

 

*INNOVATION PROJECTS

The application form includes a section where candidates should provide a 50 to 200-word outline of an innovative idea or project related to nanomaterials. This idea/project could be selected to serve as the basis for a group project in the Innovation & Entrepreneurship component of the school.

The idea or project moght be expressed for example in terms of:

  • unmet societal needs which could benefit from the development of nano-enabled products or services;

  • the (re)deployment of an existing nanomaterial or nanotechnology in an innovative product or service;

  • currently unavailable but potentially marketable products or services involving nanomaterials and/or nanotechnology
