I'm writing in connection with the RS/RAE nanotechnology inquiry, to check that
the inquiry has at its disposal the report "The
Social and Economic Challenges of Nanotechnology" that was commissioned
by the ESRC and written by Prof Stephen Wood and myself. The report will be published
on July 26, though undoubtedly an advance copy would be available from the ESRC.
I know that our earlier draft was circulated in OST; if you have this version
it may well be worth getting the final version, which has a number of improvements.
