Tom Kalil on nanotech for developing countries

Tom Kalil, now of UC Berkeley but formerly heavily involved in designing the NNI while he was with the Clinton White House, explained that issues such as nanotech for clean water in developing nations do not have a natural patron among US government agencies. He urged organizations such as Foresight and foundations to continue and increase our participation in this issue. He suggested that if the federal government is not doing enough funding of clean energy, perhaps California to should hold a referendum on doing so. In response to a question on productive nanosystems, he advocated allocating a percentage of NNI funding to more ambitious projects.—Christine
