Science and Technology Innovation Program
Over the next few months, the Science and Technology Innovation Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars will be running an experiment in the use of an online prediction market to explore the future of science and technology.
The Wilson Center's new Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies will study the potential health and environmental implications of nanotechnology products. Developments from this cutting-edge science will increasingly affect our everyday lives, from medicines to consumer products to new energy sources.
The Intel Corporation congratulates the Woodrow Wilson Center on the publication of their new report, "Nanotechnology: A Research Strategy for Addressing Risk." Intel is a leader in the field of nano-electronics and has long been a leader in environmental health and safety (EHS).

Scientists talk about the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science in this collection of exclusive interviews produced by the Science & Technology Innovation Program in conjunction with the National Science Foundation.
The Foresight and Governance Project has been exploring how virtual worlds can be used to solve real world environmental problems. Take a tour of the ecological "hot spots" in Second Life, an online 3D virtual world.
Eugene Linden, author of The Future in Plain Sight: Nine Clues to the Coming InstabilityLinden sees nine major indications that the world is veering toward another round of instability in the 21st century. These clues, he says, are "in plain sight": e.g., climate change, migration, population growth, and an imperfectly globalized economy. (First broadcast November 23-29, 1998)
