Nanoscience has emerged rapidly in terms of interdisciplinary research, technological applications, and consumer products. The unique properties of engineered nanomaterials may be accompanied by undesired health hazards, leading to a concurrent interest in the safety of nanotechnology related work, application and disposal environment. However, the field of nano-environmental safety has fallen behind commercial development due to the lack of resources and, in some cases, motivation in researching this field. In order to encourage nano-environmental safety and determine if work is needed to answer research questions in this area NSF organized a workshop with participants from universities, national laboratories and industry. The purpose of the workshop was to share information across organizations, discuss the current state of nano-safety, and identify research challenges and solutions. This article presents the significant outcomes from the study. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
