Foreword by Ministerial Group
Nanotechnologies
may seem like something from science-ction, but they are already ascience-reality and are being used to revolutionise products we buy, the ways in which they aremanufactured and our approaches to addressing global challenges. The UK is in an excellentposition to be at the forefront of nanotechnologies development, and we must maintainmomentum and keep pace with the biggest players on the international stage.The UK’s manufacturing base is a cornerstone of our continued and sustainable economicrecovery. Nanotechnologies have the potential to drive innovative and competitive industrybecause they can enable advancement in so many key manufacturing sectors such as automotive,aerospace, construction and biosciences.There is a role for Government to support and facilitate these developments so that both theUK economy and its consumers can benet fully from nanotechnologies. This means not onlyworking to create a cohesive and ourishing industry, but also acknowledging and addressingthe implications for health, safety and the environment so that we can all use products containingnanotechnologies with condence.Doing so requires a co-ordinated and joined-up approach across Government Departments.It is for this reason that the Ministerial Group on Nanotechnologies was formed, and we willcontinue to oversee efforts to develop the nanotechnologies industry while protecting thehealth of consumers and employees and avoiding damage to the environment. We will engagewith the public to make sure they are informed and condent about nanotechnologies and theproducts which contain nanomaterials.
