Nanometer Security Discussed at Science Meeting in Xiangshan

From Nov. 30~Dec. 2, the 243rd Xiangshan Science Workshop themed the Bio-effects of Nanometer Scale Materials was held in the Xiangshan Hill. Vice President Bai Chunli pointed out that the" Development first and Control next" mode brought a lot of disasters and lessons to our life and living environment. In the new century, we need new ideas of the "scientific viewpoint for development": the security studies should be carried out while nanometer technology is being developed, so that the nanometer technology may be the first new technology which is being intensively studied, and paid serious attention to, before it may produce negative effects and finally benefits the mankind safely.
