Berube Writes Nanotechnology White Paper
Dr. David Berube, professor of communication, is lead author of a National Science Foundation-funded white paper, “Nanotechnology: Communicating Risk in the 21st Century.”
The National Nanotechnology Coordinating Office will distribute the white paper to guide government officials in communicating about nanotechnology with the public and media.
Berube’s team included faculty members Brenton Faber, formerly of NC State, and Dietram Scheufele of Wisconsin, as well as graduate and doctoral students Chris Cummings, Grant Gardner, Kelly Martin, and Nick Temple. They spent nine months compiling the 150-page document and negotiating edits with 25 federal agency and departmental partners in the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
