Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C), B&C Consortia Management, L.L.C. (BCCM), The Acta Group, L.L.C. (Acta), and The Acta Group EU, Ltd (Acta EU) are pleased to announce that B&C is a proud sponsor of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association's (NanoBCA) Tenth Annual NanoBusiness Conference and Nanomanufacturing Summit 2011, which will be held September 25-27, 2011, in Boston, Massachusetts. Lynn L. Bergeson will moderate a panel discussing key nanotechnology-related environmental, health, and safety issues impacting businesses. Ms. Bergeson serves on NanoBCA's Advisory Board and is Chair of NanoBCA's Environment, Health, and Safety Committee.
The Conference will showcase technical contributions by experts and practitioners in the field of nanomanufacturing. It will highlight those areas of practice that stand out from the general nanotechnology and nanoscience themes as being near-term and having the potential to facilitate the commercial development and/or marketable application of nanoscale materials, systems, and devices.
B&C has made a concerted effort to be in the forefront of the science policy debate involving nanotechnologies and other emerging technologies. Ms. Bergeson and other professionals at B&C counsel clients on health, safety, science policy, and related legal and regulatory aspects of nanotechnology and emerging transformative technologies, and on more traditional chemical product approval matters. Ms. Bergeson serves on a number of domestic and international nanotechnology standard setting and governance committees, and writes and lectures frequently on nano-related topics. Recent publications include: Nanotechnology: Environmental Law, Policy, and Business Considerations, ABA (2010); 'New on the Horizon: Nanotechnology,' in Product Liability, ABA (2010) (co-author); Nanotechnology and the Environment, CRC Press (2008) (co-author); and Nanotechnology Deskbook, ELI (2007) (co-author). Ms. Bergeson writes frequently on emerging technologies, and is a regular contributor to the Nanotechnology Industries Association's (NIA) Newsletter (the Newsletter is free to NIA members; subscriptions are available online) and to Nanotechnology Now (available online). More information is available online.
