Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags offer benefits to product lifecycle management but also introduce extraneous materials into the recycling stream. RAND Europe explored the environmental impact of RFID tags as well as the environmental advantages that their use can provide.
This briefing was presented at the 32nd AAAS Forum on Science and Technology Policy on May 3-4, 2007 in Washington, D.C.
Presents foresights into global technology trends and their implications for the world in the year 2020.
Presents in-depth analyses on foresights into global technology trends and their implications for the world in the year 2020.
April 25, 2006 News Release: RAND Report Says Greater Effort Needed to Protect Workers from Health Risks Posed by Nanomaterials
Places workshop discussions on protecting the safety and health of workers exposed to nanoscale materials within a policy framework for consideration by NIOSH.
Focuses on biomedical applications of nanotechnology in: nanodrugs and drug delivery; prostheses and implants; diagnostics and screening technologies.
This paper reviews recent trends in the development and characterization of nanomaterials.
This book discusses trends in the current global technology revolution, including genomics, cloning, biomedical engineering, smart materials, agile manufacturing, nanofabricated computation devices, and integrated microsystems.
Nanotechnologies are tools that measure and manipulate phenomena and objects at the nanoscale. Molecular manufacturing is the willful use of these two activities to create new objects or phenomena.
To identify leading-edge technologies that could revolutionize military operations, to develop concepts of military systems that could transform warfare, and to specify the research necessary to make these systems a reality.
