In July 2004 the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering (RS/RAEng) published the report “Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies: Opportunities and Uncertainties.” The report was highly influential internationally and led to the UK being seen as a world leader in its engagement with nanotechnologies. However, the clear message today is that the UK is losing that leading position and falling behind in its engagement with this fast developing field, primarily due to a distinct lack of Government activity or funding in research into toxicology, health and environmental effects of nanomaterials.
