OECD Working Party on Biotechnology

Working Party on Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Converging Technologies

On 1 January 2015, the Working Party on Biotechnology (WPB) and the Working Party on Nanotechnology (WPN) will stop to exist individually and will merge into the Working Party on Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Converging Technologies (BNCT).

The mandate of the new Working Party on BNCT will come into effect and acknowledges the opportunities raised from the interaction of different scientific and technological areas.

On 2-3 December 2014, delegates from both WPN and WPB and other experts met to discuss future lines of work for the BNCT in the context of the development of the CSTP’s Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) for 2015-2016.

The PWB has three work areas that are relevant to the WP on BNCT:

Work Area 1: The Impact and Measurement of Key Enabling, Emerging and

Converging Technologies Based on the Life and Physical Sciences

-- Module 1.1: Statistics and Indicators for Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Converging Technologies

-- Module 1.2: Impact Assessment: Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Converging Technologies
